How would you like the chance to score a license plate honoring LeBron James?

State Rep. Bill Patmon is planning to introduce legislation to let the sale of a commemorative “LeBron James Witness 2.0” plate honoring the Akron native’s decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When LeBron James made the decision to come home, it was a big deal for Cleveland. It might not be a big deal for the rest of the world, but for Clevelanders it is.

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles offers more than 150 specialty plates, including one that honors comic book hero Superman. The Man of Steel was created by two Clevelanders, Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, who grew up in the East Side Cleveland neighborhood of Glenville.

The state does not offer any license plates commemorating a real person, dead or alive. Lindsey Bohrer, a spokeswoman for the Ohio BMV, is not aware that the state has ever had one.

The motor vehicle bureau charged $35 for most specialty plates plus an agreed to amount that goes to charity. The extra amount and proposal has been approved by the LeBron James Foundation.
