A prisoner in Ohio wants to be paroled so he can watch LeBron James potentially lead the Cavaliers to their first NBA championship. 

Jason Goudlock, a Cleveland native, has served 21 years of a six- to 25-year sentence. In a letter to the parole board, obtained by The Smoking Gun, Goudlock asks to be granted parole so he can help at-risk youths.

"On the lighter side," Goudlock adds, "I would truly like to witness in person LeBron James' pursuit of an NBA championship for my beloved hometown."
