Tonight LeBron James is supposed to announce which team he will sign to, and word is that he may choose not to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers and choose the Miami Heat instead. A big reason for this rumor is that Florida has no state income tax, and that is an important factor when you will be forced to pay $5.69 million in taxes if he remains with the Cavs. LeBronomics: Could High Taxes Influence James' Team Decision? How this relates to Ohio Republican Gubernatorial candidate John Kasich is because Kasich has said that if elected he will attempt to get rid of the state income tax. If LeBron leaves the Cavs for the Heat then I think that could become quite a talking point for Kasich on the campaign trail, especially here in Northeast Ohio where LeBron is extremely popular to us Cavs fans. And Ted Strickland, the sitting Governor of Ohio, has been attacking Kasich on his plan to get rid of the state income tax. This could honestly become a huge campaign issue if LeBron goes to Miami. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.
