CLEVELAND (AP) -- One of the Cavaliers' most famous fans is hoping the way to LeBron James' heart is through his stomach.
Cleveland native Michael Symon, one of Food Network's Iron Chefs, has offered to go to James' house once a month and cook a meal for the MVP's family and friends if he re-signs as a free agent with the Cavaliers. Symon posted a letter to James on his Facebook page.
Symon thanked James for all he has done for the city and urged him to follow his heart when making his decision. Symon also pointed out that some legendary athletes -- Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Jim Brown, Bill Russell and Michael Jordan -- created their legacies primarily with one team.
Symon said he knows "firsthand" that James is a "class act" and he hopes James stays in Cleveland "so I can watch you finish what you started which is something not many people get to do."
Last season, Symon teamed with the Cavs and opened two eating spots in Quicken Loans Arena.
