Amusement park will name roller coaster after LeBron and all he has to do is return to Cleveland

Not everyone gets to feel universally wanted in their lives.

Not everyone gets to feel universally wanted in their lives.

"Speak for yourself!" says you, feeding your 30 cats. Hey, good on you, friend.

LeBron's pursuers are largely human, however, and because of that, they have the cognitive abilities to attempt to sway him to their cause with innovative bribery. LeBron won't make a decision until the last second, presumably so that he can take into account all offers on the table, such as the one from Ohio amusement park Cedar Point:

No word yet on which coaster will be getting LeBron'd. Cedar Point has a new one this year called Pipe Scream that is not at all plumbing-themed ride and is more of a "thrill ride that rocks and rolls you on over 302 feet of track, flying 43 feet above the midway at 43 mph!"

Let others take note: Many of these free agent negotiations will probably move along a bit faster with the inclusion of amusement park rides. I'd be sure I had my own line queue, LeBron, before signing anything. What's the point of having your name on the ride if you can't elbow your way to the front on a boiling summer afternoon?

"We don't tolerate cutting in line, either!" you shout at one of your less rule-abiding cats.
