LeBron James could lead normal life in New York, mayor says
LeBron James, about to reach NBA free agent status as of 12:01 AM Thursday, could enjoy a normal life in New York, according to Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The mayor says celebrities aren't bothered much in his city of more than 8 million people.
The Cleveland Cavaliers forward is one of the most sought-after players ever to be a free agent in any sport. It becomes official at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time Thursday, and many cities want him.
Bloomberg says stars love New York because they get publicity working in the biggest city in the nation but aren't bothered while walking down the street.
