Get that weak stuff out of here. That’s what two local newspapers told a Miami sports radio talker about his attempts to place derisive ads targeting hometown hero LeBron James. The Akron Beacon Journal on Wednesday rejected a proposed full-page color ad from the South Florida radio program hosted by Dan Le Batard. The ad was proposed to run in Sunday’s edition of the newspaper. The ad shows the two Miami Heat championship rings James won during his four seasons in South Beach and includes the words “You’re Welcome, LeBron.” The ad is signed “Sincerely, Miami Heat Fans.” Mark Cohen, publisher of the Beacon Journal, said the newspaper was first contacted Tuesday by a representative of The Dan Le Batard Show. After some consideration, the publisher declined to run the ad. “I just don’t think it was appropriate for our community,” Cohen said. “We’re proud that LeBron is back. This is his hometown, and that [ad] is not something we want to be a part of or want to take money for.” A similar ad was rejected this week by the Plain Dealer in Cleveland. Akron Beacon Journal

Riley declined to say if he knew – when he met with LeBron in Las Vegas - that LeBron had met with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert four days earlier. "There wasn’t anything in that meeting that told me that wasn’t going to happen [that LeBron was going to leave]. I’ve moved on quickly from that. We are going to build another championship team and that’s it. This business, as we find it, is tough. Sometimes you have those tough calls and sometimes things happen to you that you don’t like but you’ve got to move on." Miami Herald

The Miami HEAT announced today that they have re-signed forward Chris Bosh. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Chris Bosh is a two-time NBA champion and one of the most versatile big men in the league,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “His unique skillset makes him one of the best players in the game today. I’ve always felt he was committed to this organization, this staff and this city. I think he’s going to have the opportunity of a lifetime leading this team next season and having the nine-time NBA All-Star back in the fold was a big key for us. We are very blessed to have him.” NBA.com
