ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — With NBA free agency underway as of midnight last night, the big prize in this year’s class is LeBron James, who recently opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat. With his teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh reportedly joining James in free agency to help create cap room for the Heat, Miami may have the inside track as far as keeping the King. But just in case, a Miami radio station is going all-in, at least for a day.
According to the Miami Herald, Miami radio station WQAM is, at least for today, hosting a LeBron-A-Thon. What’s a LeBron-A-Thon? That’s a little unclear, at least from the press release…
Sports Radio 560 WQAM-AM will celebrate “LEBRON-A-THON” all day, tomorrow July 1st, 2014. South Florida has enjoyed championship basketball the last four years, and we want more. We all want LeBron James to stay in Miami and WQAM is encouraging listeners put their money where their mouth is, by supporting a great cause. Listeners are being encouraged to visit WQAM.com where they can click on the “LEBRON-A-THON” banner to make a donation. 100% of the proceeds will benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Broward County.
So basically the goal of the LeBron-A-Thon, other than keeping LeBron in Miami, is to raise money for the local Boys and Girls Clubs. No matter where LeBron ends up, seems like a worthy cause.
