Ohio Governor John Kasich jumped on the “bash LeBron” bandwagon this afternoon by signing a resolution praising the Dallas Mavericks and their fans. Part of the resolution reads “Whereas, the proud city of Cleveland and the entire state of Ohio share in the excitement of Dallas Mavericks fans everywhere.” That’s right, Bron Bron, even state governments are against you.
We’re pretty sure LeBron hasn’t sold his Ohio house, but like that tax revenue matters to a state already in the hole by the billions.
I’m not singing in any chorus for LeBron James,” Kasich said.
Colmes: “You’re not?”
Kasich: “No, I’m not. Look, he’s a great basketball player, he’s a great guy. There’s a lot of great people in Ohio.”
Before that, Colmes asked Kasich if he were governor, what he would do to help persuade James to stay in Ohio.
“Alan, we’ve lost 400,000 jobs out here and the last guy I worry about is LeBron James. You know I mean, we all hope he’ll stay in Cleveland. We think we’ve got a great guy there that can turn everything around, but we got some serious problems,” Kasich said.
Kasich, flashing a bit of sports knowledge, did sympathize with Cleveland fans who are still waiting for a championship from the Cavs, Browns or Indians.
