If you follow the Cavs at all, and even if you don't, you know about the impact of LeBron James on the team and its success. Now, a new study quantifies the impact of LeBron, and winning basketball, on businesses within walking distance of The Q. A researcher from the American Enterprise Insitute discusses the "LeBron Effect" -- a double-digit increase in hospitality jobs in the Gateway District.  Then we'll update the effort to overhaul and renovate Quicken Loans Arena.  Then, should Ohio tap it's "rainy day" fund.  We'll also preview a new documentary airing on PBS about Rikers Island.
