This LeBron James Ad Is A No-Go For Ohio Newspapers Published: August 4, 2014

One Miami sports journalist recently tried to poke fun at LeBron James in a full-page ad, but two Ohio newspapers said no, according to The Huffington Post.

Sports Illustrated reported that Dan LeBatard, an ESPN Radio host, said he wanted to take out an ad with the words "You're Welcome, Lebron" and "Sincerely, Miami Heat Fans." LeBatard complained that James has yet to thank his Miami supporters since announcing that he is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The radio show called the Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Akron Beacon-Journal to inquire about placing a full-page ad, but both newspapers said that they declined.
