Despite the advice and blueprint of his idol, Michael Jordan, LeBron James has endorsed a political candidate.
Cleveland Plain Dealer:
James has lavished a little more than 0.1 percent of his 2008-09 salary of $14.4 million on the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama, according to Federal Election Commission records. In June, the Cavaliers star donated $20,000 to the Democratic White House Victory Fund, a joint committee set up by Obama and the Democratic Party for the presidential race.
I'm glad to know that LeBron and I have more in common than a 40-inch-plus vertical.
