Michael Symon Lobbies to Keep NBA Star LeBron James in Cleveland

Michael Symon Lobbies to Keep LeBron James in Cleveland

At the end of this basketball season, NBA legend and Cavaliers small forward LeBron James will officially be a free agent, with the potential for other cities, like New York, to come knocking. But Cleveland dwellers — including celebrity chef Michael Symon — won't let LeBron go without a fight.

On his Facebook page, the Iron Chef offered to go James's house once a month and cook, Iron Chef-style, for his family and friends, should he decide to stay with the Cavs. "I will always be a fan, mainly because I know firsthand what a class act you are," he said. Even though I've never been to Cleveland, I have to respect chef Symon for his local pride.

Do you think the power of food is enough to win over a world-class athlete?

Hungry for a title maybe. I don't think Symon's food is going to be enough to keep LeBron. Though LeBron may stay for some other reasons.

I couldn't help but smile when I saw that photo. Doesn't Lebron look hungry?

I'm with you, happs. I don't think food will keep him in Cleveland, I'm hoping that fact that his roots are in NE Ohio will keep him there, though.

I love Michael and his restaurants. He obviously loves the Cavs, there is even a Michael Symon restaurant in the Q. I don't think good food will keep him in Cleveland where he belongs, but I still hope he stays.
