LeBron Watch, 10 a.m.: NY governor views announcement as ‘big mistake’

New York governor David Paterson made his weekly appearance on WOR radio Thursday morning and was asked about LeBron James‘ decision.
Celeste Katz of the New York Daily News writes that Paterson said he would like to see James play in a Knicks uniform but feels that he is making a spectacle of himself with his nationally televised announcement.
“I think it’s a very big mistake to have national televised moment when you tell the people of Ohio, a state that is suffering dearly, that you’re leaving,” Paterson said on WOR.
