The Humane Society of Summit County, Ohio and the A-S-P-C-A say they will be waiving pet adoption fees based on Akron native LeBron James' NBA playoff performance. Fees for a dog up for adoption will be waved for every assist that LeBron makes during the playoffs. If he and the Los Angeles Lakers win the NBA Championship, the society will wave fees for an extra three dogs that they have named Lebron, James and Chosen One. Even though the Lakers lost Game One of the Western Conference Finals to the Nuggets, James' nine assists covered the fees for nine dogs up for adoption.The Lakers will take on the Nuggets again tonight.

This is the first name change for the 23-feet-long hot-dog-shaped vehicle since it was first introduced way back in 1936. Oscar Mayer was coy about whether the name change to Frankmobile is permanent, a spokesperson telling CNN that it’s “trying out to see if it ‘cuts the mustard’ with its fans.”
