Add Larry King to the LeBronathon....

On Friday, Larry King will bring LeBron James in for an hour interview special as part of his week of "Top" people. For instance, tonight, it'll be "Top Entertainer" Lady Gaga and Wednesday he'll have "Top Innovator" Bill Gates.

On Thursday it'll be a mystery "Top Newsmaker" guest, while Friday is James, the "Top Athlete."

We're told we'll get a few sneak preview quotes on Wednesday, but already CNN's "This Just In" blog revealed a juicy segment (to help spike interest, coverage and, of course, ratings):

King: Do you lean at all toward the place you know the best? I mean do they have an edge going in...

JAMES: Oh, absolutely.

KING: ...your home team?

JAMES: Absolutely. Because, you know, this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years. And, you know, for me, it's comfortable. So I've got a lot of memories here. And - and so it does have an edge.

It does for another 29 days and counting . . .
