Cavaliers part-owner Usher says he will ask LeBron James to join the team

Wednesday July 9th, 2014

You may have forgotten that singer and Justin Bieber mentor Usher is a minority owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he recently told a radio station in Chicago that he is willing to call James and try and convince him to join the team.

The internet has been running rampant with speculation about where James will end up, with the Cavaliers and Miami Heat appearing to be the two front runners.

Also on Extra Mustard: Is this the most compelling evidence yet that LeBron is considering returning to Cleveland?

Lets just hope that free agency doesn't tear Usher and Heat fan Bieber apart.
