AKRON, Ohio - Alder Chapman knows the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so if LeBron James chooses to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chapman will invite him to a welcome home party and serve plenty of quiche.
"It's his favorite food," she said.
Chapman, 75, is the president and founder of the LeBron James Grandmother's Fan Club, a group created in 2006 that currently has about 75 grannies as members.
She admits her heart ached a little bit when James made the decision to bolt to the Miami Heat, but the club of grandmas continued their loyalty to their "favorite grandson" by wearing Miami Heat t-shirts to games in Cleveland.
However, Chapman is hoping by the end of this week James will decide to return to Northeast Ohio for good, so she can sport her wine and gold Cavs shirts.
Chapman, along with a few other members of the club, are trying to get their message to James with polite phone calls to the LeBron James Foundation based in Bath Township.
"We don't want to be pushy, pushy, but we want to push a little bit... Let him know that we love him and wish the best for him and we want him to come back," Chapman said.
Chapman is optimistic that James is coming back to the Cavaliers and believes he will bring a championship with him.
"That would be wonderful. That would be history."
