LeBron James sends cupcakes to neighbors to apologize for pre-Decision commotion


Pastry and LeBron James links live on for another day. In the wake of The Decision 2.0, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and his family have apparently decided to apologize to his neighbors in the most fitting way possible: designer cupcakes.

Recall, in the week leading up to James’ letter that stated he was returning to Cleveland, a local cupcake shop out of Canton, Ohio was one of the first to have “insider” information, posting LeBron’s impending return to their Facebook page. Not long thereafter, Bath, Ohio police were stationed outside of James’ residence, leading to an evening-long commotion on his street as TV crews and cars had parked on both sides of the street.

According to a resident who claims to live on James’ street, a package of cupcakes from the LeBron James Family Foundation was delivered to his home Tuesday afternoon with a message inscribed:

We know that things have been hectic in the neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos.

We are so thankful to live in this community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you.

FOX Sports Ohio spoke with the individual who stated that the package was hand-delivered by the company, though they had no face-to-face interaction with James. Needless to say, this is a gesture that would have been nearly unfathomable during James’ first run with the Cavaliers. Also needless to say: They look delicious.

    Come on, no man would send cupcakes to his neighbors. This is a wife thing. And good for her.

  • MrCleaveland

    Yes he did. And Broussard thanked him very much and threw the poo against the wall to see if any of it would stick.

    Truth. Equivalent to “Hey, running to the store – you all set with tampons?”

    You’re at a gathering of family and friends. It can be a fun party or a solemn funeral service, doesn’t matter.

    When it’s time to go, you say your good-byes, each of which lasts roughly a second-and-a-half and consists of “Hey, see ya ’round.”

    At the same time, your better half is saying her goodbyes, each of which lasts 15 to 20 minutes and consists of all the chit-chat that they didn’t have time to squeeze in during the preceding three hours. And she never breaks stride, even as you discreetly tug at her elbow and mumble “Uh, we better get out there, I think our car’s on fire.”

    So true until I had small children. Even the prospect of one of my kids having a tired meltdown in front of everyone, is sufficient motivation for my wife to expediently say farewell.
