An Akron native has started a crowdsourcing campaign to give the city a life-sized tribute to LeBron James. Aaron Carey is hoping to raise $1 million for the statue on GoFundMe.com.
At Monday's shootaround, James said he appreciates the gesture, but had not thought about a pose.
"I mean, I don’t know. I don’t have a particular pose in mind but, like I said, I just think it’s the thought that counts. It’s pretty cool.”
Carey says James’ comments give him hope he will be able to raise the money for the statue.
