Wheels and onesies! Promotion honors Akron's LeBron, Curry

AKRON, Ohio (AP) Newborns at the Ohio hospital where LeBron James and Stephen Curry were born will get some special gifts during the NBA finals as those stars face off.

Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is giving care packages to parents of children born in Akron-area hospitals through June 19.

James and Curry were born at Akron City Hospital. The stars are going against each other as James' Cleveland Cavaliers play Curry's Golden State Warriors.

Golden State won the first game Thursday in the best-of-seven series.
