It is without any doubt a massive summer for the city of Cleveland and its sports teams as two of the biggest free agents in the world of basketball and football landed in Ohio.

Johnny Manziel - perhaps the biggest name in this year's NFL Draft was drafted by the Cleveland Browns while Akron's own LeBron James returned to his first team in the Cavaliers.

In the aftermath of both announcements, the people of Cleveland have gone crazy with Browns season tickets selling out the day after Manziel was drafted.

Manziel's #2 Browns jersey has since become one of the biggest sellers in the NFL since his arrival in Cleveland and he has not been out of the headlines ever since.

Just moments after LeBron announced that he was returning home a street party broke out outside his house in Akron, Ohio.

Since then the focus has been on what jersey number LeBron would be wearing in Cleveland with his choice to revert back to 23 being the topic of a lot of debate.

So from giant cardboard cut outs of his head at Cleveland Indians games to masses of people outside his home, Cleveland is well and truly in the grips of LeBron fever.

Now a Cleveland lawmaker has announced his intention to pass a law that will allow Ohio based drivers to acquire license plates honouring Cleveland's #23.

State Rep. Bill Patmon is planning to introduce an interesting piece of legislation which would allow the state's motorists to boast a commemorative LeBron James witness 2.0 license plate.

In reference to everyone who saw their prodigal son return they may now be able to showcase that fact to the world.

Not the first

Patmon has however previously got similar legislation passed in which he paid tribute to Superman.

The Man of Steel was in fact created by Cleveland natives Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster who both grew up in Glenville.

According to Patmon, people from all over the country contacted them about the Superman plates and he anticipates a similar reaction should the LeBron plates become available.
