Who knew Everyone’s Favorite “Golden Angel” was such a sports fan?
The city of Cleveland has a new secret weapon in its feverish campaign to keep native son — and NBA free agent — LeBron James from hightailing it out of town: America’s Sweetheart Betty White!
Betty and the rest of the cast of TV Land’s sitcom smash Hot In Cleveland appear in a new ad geared toward keeping the hoopster guard with the Cavaliers.
In the spot, the comedienne appears in character along with her fellow Cleveland co-stars –Wendie Malick, Valerie Bertinelli, and Jane Leeves — asking King James to stay in Ohio. While the other ladies seem to be ignorant about just what it is that LeBron does, White knows her sports, and gleefully offers to make a few more years with the Cavs “worth James’ while.”
