CONFETTI BENCHED

LeBron James may go from idolized to immortalized in his hometown.

A GoFundMe account has been established with a goal to raise $1 million to sculpt and erect a life-size statue of James in Akron Josh Jackson Jersey Youth , where he began his basketball career before becoming a superstar with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Aaron Carey, who like James played at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, began the campaign to raise money to honor the three-time NBA champion.

”We want to do this with the fans,” Carey told the Akron Beacon-Journal . ”We want fans to be able to thank LeBron for what he has done for Akron and the Cavs.”

Carey told the newspaper he has been in contact with artist Omri Amrany, who has created statues for basketball greats Michael Jordan Byron Jones Jersey Womens , Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

James was touched by the gesture.

”First of all, thank you,” he said Monday when informed of the movement. ”It would be cool, not only for myself Mike Hughes Jersey , but for my family and all the people that had anything to do with this journey thus far. I’m appreciative even of the thought.”

The 33-year-old is trying to advance to the Finals for the eighth straight time. To do that, the Cavaliers must eliminate the Boston Celtics, who have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series entering Monday’s Game 4.

An initial rendering of a possible statue by Amrany shows James soaring toward the basket, with his right arm cocked back to deliver a dunk while wearing his signature Nikes and his No. 23 high school jersey.

Carey said a site for the statue has not been finalized.

”We really want this to be in Akron,” he said. ”We talked to (Cavs owner) Dan Gilbert and he wants to put one up in Akron after LeBron retires.”

James laughed when asked if he had a preference on how the statue would depict him.

”I don’t have a particular pose in mind Cheap Carlton Davis Jersey ,” he said. ”I think it’s the thought that counts, it’s pretty cool.”

Carey said a marketing campaign is underway to attract donors with deep pockets. The first 15 donors to contribute $30,000 or more would receive a limited edition miniature replica of the statue, signed by the artist.




OAKLAND RAIDERS (6-10)

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: Ss Reggie Nelson and Keith McGill; LB NaVorro Bowman; CBs TJ Carrie and Sean Smith; K Sebastian Janikowski; DL Denico Autry; TE Lee Smith; QB E.J. Manuel; LS Jon Condo.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: None.

NEEDS: Coach Jon Gruden takes over team coming off disappointing season with many holes. There could be even more voids if Raiders choose to release several high-priced veterans to create even more cap room. Biggest holes right now are on defense; Raiders must upgrade at linebacker and in secondary, as well as find pass rush help for Khalil Mack. Oakland also would like to add at least one more receiver Tyron Smith Jersey Elite , along with possible upgrade at tackle. Another question is at running back; keep Marshawn Lynch and his $6 million salary or find starter in free agency or draft?

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $20 million.
