The New Book About LeBron James Has A Cover, And The Title? ‘The Whore Of Akron’, Which Rules

I’m sure this is old news in the publishing business and among the members of the League of Extraordinary LeBron James Haters, but the title of the forthcoming book about LeBron James is new to me. And I love it.

The Whore Of Akron, slated for release on November 15th of this year and written by Esquire contributing journalist Scott Raab, technically has the longer title of The Whore of Akron: One Man’s Search for the Soul of LeBron James, but I like The Whore of Akron much better. It’s more concise, punchier. And I love punchy.

UPDATE: I just came up with an alternate title for the book, should Mr. Raab wish to reconsider:

LeBron, LeBron: One Man’s Strange, Quixotic Journey From Cleveland To South Beach

Not too shabby, eh? Heck, we could even have Bette Midler play the title role if the book was ever adapted into a Broadway show…
