Ohio already has dozens of options for special license plates, from Ohio State to Superman to being Dog Friendly -- and now one local lawmaker wants to add one more.  

Rep. Bill Patmon, D-Cleveland wants to create the "LeBron James Witness 2.0" license plate.

LeBron announced last month that he would be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers after four years with the Miami Heat.

The Akron, Ohio native returns to the Cavaliers where he remains the franchise's leader in points scored (15,251), scoring average (27.8 PPG) field goals made (5,415) and attempted (11,403), free throws made (3,650) and attempted (4,917), steals (955) and minutes played (22,119).

He also ranks second in team history in three-pointers made (771), second in assists (3,810), third in defensive rebounds (3,183), fourth in blocks (482), fifth in total rebounds (3,861) and is tied for seventh in games played (548).

Patmon feels a plate would be the perfect way to pay homage to the four-time MVP.

Patmon, who's sponsoring the bill, plans to introduce it within the next two weeks.
