The Cedar Point amusement park is making LeBron James an interesting offer.

If the NBA star will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the park will rename one of its roller coasters "King James" after him.

“We’re having fun with it, obviously, but the offer is legit,” said Bryan Edwards, Cedar Point’s public relations manager.

James is a free agent and can sign with any team, beginning Thursday. He began his career in Cleveland and played there seven years, winning the MVP title twice and taking the team to its only NBA finals appearance.

Then he went to Miami as a free agent, where he led the team to the NBA finals in each of his four seasons. The Heat won the title twice.

Here is the Twitter post with Cedar Point's offer:

Hey - come back to the and we'll rename one of our coasters, "King James!" Ball in your court, sir. RT, !

It would be fitting both Cedar Point and LeBron, over rated and overpriced, I avoid both.


I agree!


Coming home, I'm coming home;
Tell the world I'm coming home!

When they get a league limited to 6'4" instead of the freaks jamming the ball .I might watch one of those !


Raise the baskets, in the NBA, to 12 feet, minimum. When the game was created people over 6 ft tall were considered tall. Change the 3 point line to a straight line across the court 3 feet behind the key. Let these overpaid babies earn their pay.


Name one of the rides that go round and round and make you wanna puke after him...


Good one!

In spite of the fact I tend to agree with most of the comments on here. I do hope LeBron comes home to Cleveland. If for no other reason than to prove to him, what the Good Witch told Dorothy : " There's no place like home "


Hey Cedar Point: I'm not impressed. Then again, I avoid paying your prices.

Idiot sports figures are not impressive.


You act like he is some kind of hero?
Name your ride after a real hero, a veteran, that put his life on the line, so that you can live in freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!


Right on!!


I hope Lebron comes back just so all you whinies can be happy! Remember when he left on national t.v. and made a mockery out of the fans and Cleveland? Remember how everyone booed him at the games he came to after he left? Remember...never mind. Obviously you don't or you hypocrites wouldn't want him back.

Someone got paid to write this?


If they re name a coaster after the self proclaimed "King" I won't ride! It will have to be the second best they have, break down at the end and they will have to move it from park to park!
