Cleveland native and prolific magazine feature writer Scott Raab has a tattoo of Chief Wahoo on his arm. He's also writing a book about LeBron James, the player whom Raab has deemed #WhoreOfAkron on Twitter.

In Esquire, Raab has a hilarious conversation with Chris Rock about LeBron James, 10 months after "The Decision":
SCOTT RAAB: I'm writing a book about LeBron. I'm a Cleveland guy. I'm mad at him.

CHRIS ROCK: I don't even see what the big story is. The owner's an idiot. Why is the owner an idiot? I said it on television — you can look it up. I was at a Lakers game — they were probably playing the Knicks. It was on TNT, and Kenny and Mark Jackson and whoever interviewed me on the sidelines, they asked me about LeBron. I said, "They should trade him." I said it, on national television.

SR: We thought he was coming back, Chris.

CR: I said you should trade him. I said any owner, any big-ego owner would take this shot. You could've got any player — you literally could've got Kobe Bryant. You could've got any player you wanted. You could've gotten literally any player outside of Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard. Any player. You could've got any two or three players you liked. I said this on national television. You could look it up — you're a writer.

I said that in the middle of the season. The day the season was over, I was doing press for Grown Ups, the movie I did with Sandler. They asked me again: "Where's LeBron going? What's going to happen?" I said, "Well, if he's going to Cleveland, you will know within 24 hours, but if Pat Riley gets him in a room, it's all over."

SR: We thought he was coming back.

CR: Why would you think he's coming back? People move from Cleveland to Miami every f****** day. They don't move from Miami to Cleveland.
