Best game giveaway ever? Peoria Chiefs Minor League baseball team to give away replica Lebron James championship rings
This is pretty funny:
For one night, fans of the Peoria Chiefs can have their own replica of LeBron James' first championship ring.
Call it the cheapest promotion in sports history because, like James' ring, the handout doesn't exist.
Heimlich maneuver classes will be offered at the stadium to help prevent people from "choking in a big situation."
"Really this is just us getting back to the real world and waking up today and trying to solve our own personal problems," vice president of ticket sales Eric Obalil said.
"We aren't sure if the league will allow it," said team President Rocky Vonachen. "But if LeBron doesn't need to show up for the fourth, maybe we won't either."

People need to stop thinking he was a miracle worker, because he wasn't...Miami isn't cleveland and it takes alot more than what he has to coordinate the team properly. I don't know...I blame spoelstra to an extent but the players just weren't good enough to beat dallas. Dallas was on cue.

All I know is this promotion is funny.
Spoelstra sure doesn't seem up to the level they need.

Yeah, not sure if it spoelstra or the players, but we can all remember how it was supposed to go down early on in the season and when it didn't...well...people will start pointing fingers.
