Add this one to the list of LeBron James conspiracy theories:
Folks in Bath feel strongly that LBJ will sign w/ CLE. LBJ's camp contacted cops hour ago to alert them of tonight's annoucement. #kingjames— PHIL TREXLER-ABJ (@PhilTrexler) July 10, 2014
Sources confirm police/security will be stepped up this afternoon at LeBron's house ahead of THE ANNNOUNCEMENT LATER TODAY #CourtingLeBron— Bob Jones WEWS (@bobjonesTV) July 10, 2014
Sources also confirm LeBron will not be at his Bath Township home. Beefed up police presence in case of crowd control #courtingLeBron— Bob Jones WEWS (@bobjonesTV) July 10, 2014
Of course, this could go either way. Wouldn't it make more sense to prepare for riots if LeBron was staying in Miami? Maybe? People do riot in celebration, after all.
UPDATE: So much for this theory.
Bath Township, Ohio police -- home to Lebron James -- tells NBC News they are NOT preparing for an announcement or extra police details.— Tom Winter (@Tom_Winter) July 10, 2014
