This will either make you chuckle, cry or vomit profusely. When the Cavaliers made their pitch to LeBron last weekend, they played up the whole “Home” theme, and today, they decided to share part of their presentation.

The┬áCavs’ video production team has a won a local Emmy for their game presentation footage, so it should come as no surprise that this is well-done. It features scenes from LeBron’s career — from high school to the pros — while music from the “Gladiator,” one of James’ favorite films, plays in the background.

So their pitch included this film and a “Family Guy” cartoon. What a combination. [FanHouse]
