LeBron Homecoming King





AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Crews are working all night in the University of Akron's InfoCision Stadium to prepare for Friday's royal homecoming. More than 25,000 fans are expected to pack the arena.



When LeBron James announced he would return home to the Cleveland Cavaliers and northeast Ohio, the city of Akron started making plans to welcome him back.



Less than two weeks ago, city officials asked Mark Cheplowitz to produce the event. His company, "Wizard of Ahs," has produced numerous events, including "Dazzle the District,"the lighting of the chandelier in Playhouse Square and the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. They were actually in the middle of working three other shows at the time, but feel they're ready to pull off this monumental event.



"It's a show that has a lot of moving parts. It hadn't been fully developed yet, and so it required a lot of time, a lot of thinking, and fortunately, there were a lot of time, a lot of folks who really stepped up and made this a lot easier than I thought," said Cheplowitz.



Cheplowitz says it will be a homecoming to remember for the thousands of fans cheering on their hometown hero.



"This is tremendous. It's exciting. This is very contemporary. This is right now," he said. "I hope he likes what we do!"



Although sworn to secrecy about the event's plans, Cheplowitz revealed more than 40 special crews are on hand, including tech support, to make sure everything runs smoothly. He also revealed the mayor of Akron will be in attendance.



As for the guest of honor? Cheplowitz said, "It's an honor to work for LeBron James and his people, and it's certainly a privilege to work for the families and the I…

Heat look to target Carmelo Anthony







MIAMI -- The Miami Heat's immediate focus remains overcoming a 2-1 NBA Finals deficit to the San Antonio Spurs, but discussions have begun within the organization about trying to grow their so-called Big Three into a Big Four, according to sources close to the situation.



Sources told ESPN.com that Heat officials and the team's leading players have already started to explore their options for creating sufficient financial flexibility to make an ambitious run at adding New York Knicks scoring machine Carmelo Anthony this summer in free agency.



The mere concept would require the star trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to all opt out of their current contracts by the end of the month and likely take further salary reductions in new deals that start next season to give Miami the ability to offer Anthony a representative first-year salary. The Heat also are prevented from making any formal contact with Anthony until July 1 and can do so then only if he opts out of the final year of his current contract. Anthony has until June 23 to notify the Knicks of his intentions, according to sources.*



But the success of the Heat's 2010 free-agent bonanza has established them as the NBA's undisputed destination franchise, with owner Micky Arison empowering big-thinking team president Pat Riley to attempt to pull off another coup in the market despite new collective bargaining agreement rules aimed at preventing it.



Sources say internal conversations within the Heat organization about pursuing this course have run concurrently with Miami's bid to win a third consecutive championship, with sources adding that James in particular is likely to try to recoup potential salary sacrificed through fresh off-court business opportunities if the Heat's new dream scenario does come to fruition.

He Got Game 2?

Spike Lee and Ray Allen want to make He Got Game 2.

Quote:

 

Now that the long-gestating Inside Man 2 has been shelved, Spike Lee has moved on to trying to get yet another sequel off the ground. In a recent interview with The Stashed flagged yesterday by Indiewire, Lee said he’s committed to making a sequel to He Got Game:

“It’s not really a rumor anymore... We’ve just got to get it. Ray [Allen] wants to do it, I want to do it, Lala… I mean Rosario [Dawson] want’s to do it. We’ve just got to get Denzel [Washington] on board and I’ll write the script.”

Some might think that it’s a sad sign for the movie industry that one of the most important directors of the ’80s and ’90s has been reduced to pitching sequels and remakes. (And especially when a sequel to He Got Game is as necessary as a sequel to Raging Bull.) But we figure we should make the best of it. After carefully mulling over some ideas at the Slate offices, we’ve come up with the following, more promising pitches for Spike Lee sequels:

He Got Game 2 and Inside Man 2 are terrible ideas for Spike Lee sequels. Here are better ones.…
