To My Family, Friends and Fans in Akron:
For all my life, I have lived in Akron — and for that, I am truly a lucky man.
It was here where I first learned how to play basketball, and where I met the people who would become my lifelong friends and mentors. Their guidance, encouragement and support will always be with me.
Akron is my home, and the central focus of my life. It's where I started, and it's where I will always come back to.
You can be sure that I will continue to do everything I can for this city, which is so important to my family and me. Thank you for your love and support. You mean everything to me.
as someone who was born in the same city, and has lived in the same area. "Go F--- Yourself". You're a selfish little prick that disgraced not only Cleveland on national television, BUT AKRON AND THE REST OF OHIO. You, just like Art Modell before you, are not allowed and claim this as "home", and are no longer welcome here. Go eat a semi-truck full of dicks
