BOSTON (CBS) — Thursday night means it’s time for some Role Play on The Adam Jones Show’s Game Of Jones!
The sports world is waiting for LeBron James to announce if he’s heading back to Miami, or if he’ll take his talents back to Cleveland. So as we wait for LeBron, Adam Jones decided the best way to kill some time is with an all LeBron edition of Role Play Thursday.
Here are the questions:
— You are Chris Bosh : Where do you want LeBron to sign?
“I want him to go back to Miami,” Jones said as Bosh. “I don’t want to leave South Beach. I don’t really want to go to Houston — I mean I’d go there and get compensated well… and I think they could be a competitive team. But why on earth would I want to play with anybody other than LeBron James?”
— You are Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert — What would the return of LeBron mean to the Cavs?
“It would mean that me and him could finally mend fences. We all say things we don’t mean,” Jones said as Gilbert. “I’m willing to sweep it all under the bridge because we’ll have LeBron back here, we can all be witnesses again, and we’re going to bring not one, not two, not three, not four…. maybe only one or two championship banners here in Cleveland.”
— You are Pat Riley: What do you do if LeBron goes to the Cavs?
“I send a strongly worded statement directly to Danny Ainge and I, one more time, tell him to ‘shut the F up’ about greasing the skids on getting LeBron out of Miami,” Jones said. “I would tell him to shut up, and we’re still going to be better than his team with or without LeBron James. We’ll figure something out; I won before him here in Miami and we’ll win after him. Good riddance; kids these days don’t want to stick it out.”
— You are Brian Windhorst: Your thoughts on LeBron possibly going to the Cavs?
“I’m bummed about it,” said Jones. “I guess I’d still be a big deal and be featured, but now I go from the sunshine of Miami and have to go to Cleveland? I hope I continue to ride his coattails in sunny locales rather than Ohio.”
— You are Johnny Manziel: How excited would you be for LeBron to sign in Cleveland?
“LeBron is thinking about going to Cleveland?” Jones joked. “I better get up to speed on this and stop partying off the field and taking selfies with Justin Bieber.”
