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 [1]‘ 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 [2].

“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.
