Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Basketball superstar LeBron James used cupcakes to apologize to his immediate neighbors in Bath Township for the traffic jams caused by his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this month.
James sent a team from a Fairlawn, Ohio bakery around his immediate neighborhood in Bath Township to deliver cupcakes.
“Dear Friend,” read a card that came with the treats. “We know things have been hectic in our neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos. We are so thankful to live in this wonderful community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you.”
Each box contained six “Just A Kid From Akron Cherry Cola” cupcakes and six “Homecourt Chocolate Chunk” cupcakes which were originally devised for James’ foundation.
James bought the property in 2003 and went on to build a 30,000-square-foot mansion on the land.
“It was really hectic around here,” said David Galehouse, a rising sophomore at Ohio State whose home is a few blocks from James’ house. “But it’s really nice for LeBron to do something like this.”
Galehouse said that despite his close proximity to the basketball star’s home, he has seen him only once.
