Beginning with Joe Rose in the morning, the folks at 560 WQAM-AM are raising money for the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County on Tuesday in a creative and thoughtful effort to convince LeBron James to stay in Miami.
Negotiations for free agency can begin on Tuesday and James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh each opted out of their contracts in recent days to become unrestricted free agents. Teams reportedly will be lining up this week in the hopes of securing a meeting with James. Heat president Pat Riley, of course, has had a head start on the field.
James has worked closely with the Boys and Girls Club for many years. His ill-fated television special in the summer of 2010 to announce his decision to sign with the Heat rasied money for the organization.
Here's the full press release from 560:
