The LeBron Begging Continues: Cleveland Orchestra to Play Special Message on July 1

Cleveland, LeBron, blah blah blah, begging, LeBron, etc. There, you are caught up.

July 1, the day NBA players can officially become free agents and talk to other teams, will be marked by a free performance by the Cleveland Orchestra on Public Square. In conjunction with the More Than a Player squadron (Dave Gilbert, WKYC, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission), the orchestra will perform a special piece for LeBron while up to 20,000 (that seems like a pretty generous estimate) fans wave placards in the background.

If that wasn't enough hoopla, the cast from "Hot in Cleveland" will be sending a special video message to fans in Cleveland. Yes, Betty White is now going to hop on the "stay in Cleveland, LeBron" train, which is pretty cool, I guess. Sure beats any celebrity New York could drag to a phone for an interview.

Details are all over on this page should you care.
