Cable guy: LeBron James heads for pay-per-view Nov 8, 5:49 PM (ET) Email this Story
AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Coming soon to cable: LeBron James. The 6-foot-7 senior at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School is considered the nation's top prep basketball player. If he decides to skip college, he most likely will be a top pick in this spring's NBA draft.
This season, his team's routinely sold-out games will be offered on pay-per-view in 14 counties in northeast Ohio. Most of his home games will be played at the 6,000-seat University of Akron arena.
The games will be available to about 600,000 homes for about $4 to $7 a game, Bill Jasso, vice president of public affairs for the northeast Ohio division of Time Warner, said Friday.
The venture will be a partnership between Time Warner and the school. Jasso declined to release financial details.

Oh, yeah. The Houston Rockets have traded point guard Steve Francis, who's spent the better part of the last 2 1/3 seasons on the injured list, to the very team that drafted him second overall in 1999-- The Memphis (then Vancouver) Grizzlies.
