Cleveland just took LeBron James mania to a whole new level.
An Ohio lawmaker is planning to propose legislation to create a “LeBron James Witness 2.0” license plate to commemorate the NBA star’s return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“When LeBron came home, it was a big deal for us,” State Rep. Bill Patmon said, via The Associated Press. “It might not be for the rest of the world, but it’s a big deal for Cleveland.”
Ohio’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles already offers a plethora of specialty plates — over 150 to be specific — and Patmon is responsible for one of them. He created a Superman specialty plate that became available in 2013. The comic book was created by two Clevelanders.
If legislation for the LeBron James license plate passes, it would be the first Ohio plate to commemorate any real person, alive or dead.
