So according to Professor LeRoy Brooks of the Boler School of Business at John Carroll University in Cleveland, he did some calculations and his findings are that the city’s economy will take a $500 million boost when Lebron comes home! He says that “More fans will flock to Quicken Loans Arena to see James play, more staff will be needed at the arena to handle those larger crowds, more money will be spent during games at local bars and restaurants, and all of that will get pumped back into the region…call it the LeBron Effect.” Wow I wish philly could get a boost like that!
