LeBron apologizes to Akron neighbors with cupcakes

Score another victory for LeBron James.

The former Miami Heat star went out of his way Tuesday to apologize to his neighbors in Akron, Ohio, by sending them cupcakes. The gesture was made after he created a fan and media frenzy when speculation began about his possible return to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Before James made the decision go home after playing four seasons in Miami, fans camped out in front of his home. Extra police were called to control the crowd. So James delivered the sweets and an apology letter to everyone in the neighborhood for the inconvenience.

The letters, which began with “Dear Friend,” concluded with “We Hope You Enjoy The Treat” and the names of everyone in James’ immediate family, including his wife and two sons.
