The object of Symon's (and, these days, most other Clevelander's) affections is NBA superstar LeBron James, who this summer is up for free agency. Rampant speculation has the two-time MVP landing anywhere from the New York Knicks to the Los Angeles Clippers-or staying put with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
On Tuesday, Symon posted a heartfelt (some might say gushing; others desperate) open letter to James on his Facebook page. "I first off would like to thank you for what you have done for the fine city of Cleveland," the letter begins. "You have created a energy downtown that has not been seen in years and have allowed businesses to thrive beyond their wildest dreams."
More after the jump. Symon then enters into a kind of bromantic rhapsody: "I truly believe regardless of where you go championships will follow because you are just that damn good and that each city will embrace you (although not as much as Ctown...lol)." But the bombshell (for foodies, at least) is inexplicably buried in the P.S.: "I've never really been one to beg or bribe but if you do choose to stay I'll come over once a month to cook up an Iron Chef style dinner for your family and friends!!"
Too bad Facebook doesn't allow for heart-dotted i's.
