Reporter's Note: The president is way into basketball. Me, not so much. But since I write to him everyday and there is just no question that he was following the LeBron James announcement, that’s pretty much what I had to watch as I penned this latest missive.

Dear Mr. President,

Call me psychic, but I suspect you were paying some attention last night when LeBron-o-mania rose to a fever pitch as we waited for news of where one of the hottest basketball players in a good while is going to suit up next season. I know that you were rooting for LeBron James to head to your home town Chicago Bulls, but come on, you knew that was a half court shot at the buzzer at best.

And now he is going to Miami. Well, best of luck to him and the Heat. I’m sure you’ll find a chance to see him play now and then, and if you need help getting good seats, give me a call. I can probably pull some strings for you. After all, I know Wolf and he’s tight with the basketball crowd.

Lebron James on 360°

Lebron James, the NBA All-Star from Cleveland, came to New Orleans to play a game and hoped to help this city in a small way. He did more than that, as the Lebron James Foundation opened up a new playground and basketball court. The kids were excited, and parents and family members were thrilled, that he took the time to see them. To them, he truly is “King James.”

In a city that is still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina, opening a playground is just a small part of the rebuilding efforts. James told me he didn't do this because he has to, he did it because he wants to. And that's what he'll be doing Friday at the NBA Day of Service when NBA All Stars, including “King James”, work on rebuilding projects throughout the New Orleans area.

Lebron also appeared Thursday night on 360° in our “Voice of 360°” contest. Did you see him? We’ll debut another announcer candidate next week.
