The Whore of Akron: One Man's Search for the Soul of LeBron James

"If there has been a chance for me to come to Cleveland and people enthusiasts welcomed me again, that'd be a good tale. "—Lebron James

Scott Raab is a final vestige of Gonzo Journalism in an period whilst sanitary decorum reigns. Crude yet warmhearted, poetic yet raving, Raab has chronicled—at GQ and Esquire—everything from nights out with the likes of Tupac and Mickey Rourke to an ethical research into Holocaust death-camp defend Ivan the poor to the rebuilding of the area exchange middle website, however the e-book you carry on your palms is neither a narrative nor a role: The Whore of Akron is the made from lifelong soreness, and a project sure with the which means of lifestyles.

Raab sat within the decrease bowl of Cleveland Stadium on December 27, 1964, whilst the Browns defeated the Colts for the NFL international Championship—the final activities identify the declining urban has gained. He nonetheless incorporates his price ticket stub anywhere he is going, competently tucked inside of a Ziploc bag. the honor of that triumph is a simple factor to forget—each new release born in Cleveland is one other iteration faraway from that victory; a whole fan base "whose day-by-day bread has endlessly tasted of ash. "

LeBron James used to be imagined to swap all that. a local son of Akron, he used to be already global well-known through the age of seventeen, had already graced the canopy of activities Illustrated, was once already worthy $90 million to Nike. He gave the look of a miracle heaven-sent by way of God to rework Cleveland's wasting methods. That the Cavaliers drafted him, the fatherland prodigy, with the 1st decide of the 2003 draft, appeared not anything in need of future. yet after seven years—and nonetheless no parade down Euclid Avenue—he left. And he left in a manner that appeared designed to curl the knife: saying his flow to South seashore on a nationally televised ESPN creation with a sly name ("The Decision") that echoed fifty years of Cleveland activities futility.

Out of James's treachery grew a monster. Raab, a fifty-nine-year-old, 350-pound, Jewish Santa Claus with a first-rate Wahoo tattoo, may undergo witness to LeBron's each stream, and in doing so might act because the eyes and ears of Cleveland itself. (He didn't preserve this intentions a mystery and was once in a timely fashion banned through the Miami warmth. )

The Whore of Akron is an indictment of a traitorous athlete and the tale of Raab's hilarious, profane (and profound) quest to bare the "wee jewel-box" of LeBron James's very soul.
