LeBron’s decision comes tonight
AP Sports Writer
AKRON, Ohio – With LeBron James’ decision nearing by the second, the Cleveland Cavaliers took one final, and perhaps desperate, run at the biggest free agent of them all.
New Cavs coach Byron Scott showed up unannounced at James’ summer camp and spent an hour watching the two-time MVP and several Cleveland players work out on Wednesday as the NBA – and seemingly the entire sports world – prepares for James to announce which team he’ll sign with during a national TV appearance on ESPN.
Norby Williamson, ESPN’s vice president of production, said that announcement will come during the first 10 minutes of Thursday night’s hourlong broadcast. Sportscaster Jim Gray will handle the introduction, announcement and questions. Williamson said Gray was hand-picked by James’ team, who approached the network last week about the special.
And a person familiar with the plans tells The Associated Press the interview will take place at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, Conn.
Where James will ultimately end up, however, is still very much an unknown.
