WADSWORTH, Ohio (AP) – One of LeBron James’ very first homes in northeast Ohio is on the market.

WJW-TV reports James’ former home in Wadsworth has been listed at more than $665,000. The two-story, five-bedroom house was James’ home from 2005-2008.

Real estate listing agent Barbara Wilson says the fact that James used to live at the two-acre property could be a bonus to the buyer. The current owners say the James connection has been an added benefit of living at the home.

The Cleveland Cavalier hasn’t lived at the house for eight years. But that doesn’t stop fan mail and even deliveries from Nike from making their way to their front door.

James also left behind a basketball hoop that neighbors often saw him practice on.
