If LeBron James signs with the Cavaliers, he will get a roller coaster named after him

Thursday July 10th, 2014

LeBron James is currently deciding between joining the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat, but an Ohio theme park is offering him something that just might tip the scales in the Cavaliers' favor: a roller coaster named after James.

Having your own roller coaster is an honor generally saved for super heroes, so when the CEO of Cedar Point amusement park offers to rename one of its rides "King James" if he returns home to Cleveland, it's something any rational human would have to consider.

James met with Heat president Pat Riley on Tuesday, who likely made the four-time MVP a lot of promises about who he can bring to the Miami roster, but unless he could offer up something better than 3,000 feet of twisted steel, it looks like LeBron's decision is clear.
