Broadway cast tries serenade to sway LeBron to Knicks

Posted Jul 1 2010 2:32PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- The cast of a Broadway musical is joining the chorus of New Yorkers wooing LeBron James.

In a video posted on YouTube, four actresses from "Promises, Promises" sing 26 reasons from A to Z that the NBA star should sign with the Knicks. The lyrics range from art museums to zoos and insist that "despite what you've heard, New Yorkers are nice."

The two-time MVP became a free agent Thursday, setting off a frenzy of teams trying to lure him away from Cleveland. Knicks fans have been salivating over the possibility of attracting James for at least two years, as the club slashed salary to create the opportunity to sign him.

The revival of the 1968 "Promises, Promises" opened on Broadway in April starring Sean Hayes of "Will & Grace" fame.
