(CNN) - Add one more name to the list of people with LeBron fever – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
"Come on, LeBron!", Bloomberg cheered in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN's John King, USA.
CNN Chief National Correspondent (and major hoops fan) John King asked Bloomberg what the Big Apple mayor could do to win over the superstar.
"Well, I don't know that I can do a lot. He's not called me and asked me. I can't tell him how to fix his jump shot," Bloomberg said. "What I can tell him is New York's a great place to - to live and to work."
Bloomberg also mentioned that in addition to the New York Knicks, his city's longtime basketball team, the New Jersey Nets are becoming the Brooklyn Nets– giving New York two chances to land Lebron James.
"The great thing about New York is LeBron will be able to walk the streets and not be bothered by people. But he'll also have the power of being a star when he wants to do it. You can have both things in New York."
The basketball star will have plenty of opportunities to consider Bloomberg's arguments. The Knicks and the Nets are among the teams making a serious play to get James.
