Everyone around the basketball world seems to have an opinion on where LeBron James should play next. Wednesday, Indians manager Terry Francona threw his hat in the ring for LeBron to come home to Northeast Ohio.
“That would be really cool,” said Francona, whose a huge basketball fan. “Just because I am enjoying sort of being entrenched here, I would love it…I know I would plan my trips back to Cleveland a little more frequently.”
In fact, Francona shared a stoy about how watching James play helped him get though a particulary trying time as the former manager of the Boston Red Sox.
“I was in Miami a couple years ago when things were kind of falling apart in Boston, and I just went and hid,” Francona said. “I went and bought a ticket to a game just to watch him play - and it was worth it. It was great.”
