LeBron the jaguar —not the Cavalier — leaving Ohio
AKRON, Ohio — A LeBron is leaving northeast Ohio, but it's a cat, not a Cavalier.
Whether NBA superstar LeBron James is staying with the Cleveland Cavaliers is still a big question, but the Akron Zoo says it will say goodbye to another LeBron, a jaguar born there last year.
By mid-June, the cat is going to the Brevard (breh-VAHRD') Zoo in Melbourne, Fla., in hopes he'll produce offspring with a female jaguar named Masaya.
A zoo statement on Thursday said the jaguar LeBron got his name in a contest.
LeBron James grew up in Akron and once lived not far from the zoo's entrance. He can become a free agent this summer, and there's Been massive speculation about whether he'll stay in his home state, with Cleveland.
