Coach Scott has it exactly right. Cleveland's pitch should be all about winning at home. Let's face it, LeBron owes Cleveland nothing. He came here for 7 years and for 7 years we supported the team and LeBron gave us a great run. Nobody owes anybody anything else at this point.

That said, how do we persuade the King of Basketball to sign with the Cavs? It's all about his hometown. There is not another place where LeBron can go and be worshipped as much as here in Cleveland. Sure, anywhere he does he'll get attention, but that will die as soon as he retires. Look at Chicago and Jordan, vs. Cleveland and Bob Feller. The former heaped praise on Jordon while he was there, but their isn't the rapid love for the guy like there is for Feller here in Cleveland. Decades after he last pitcher, Feller commands the love and respect of Clevelanders. The question is, does Lebron want to be celebrated for 5-7 years in NY or Chi, or does he want to be loved in Cleveland, Akron and Ohio in general for the remainder of his life?
