LeBron James sent cupcakes to his neighbors. Say what?

Wednesday July 23rd, 2014

There's nothing quite like cupcakes delivered to your doorstep on a random Tuesday night care of one very sweet neighbor by the name of LeBron James (and his whole family, of course).

That's just what residents of his Bath Township neighborhood in Ohio got earlier with a note that read:

"Dear Friend, We know things have been hectic in our neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos. We are so thankful to live in this wonderful community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you." 

The box had two kinds of cupcakes: a half-dozen "Just a Kid From Akron Cherry Cola" and another six of "Homecourt Chocolate Chunk." 

And yet, strangely, LeBron's name came up earlier this month in the context of cupcakes; a local bakery in Ohio predicted some big news.
