CLEVELAND – As Clevelander cope with LeBron James officially taking his talents to Los Angeles, some may be wondering who is worthy of taking over as the face of Cleveland. Fortunately, King James’ throne may not be vacant very long.
Several Browns players already want a shot at the throne.
2017 No. 1 overall pick, Myles Garrett wasted no time making his desires know. Shortly after the news broke that James was signing a four-year deal with the Lakers, Garrett boldly tweeted at James and let him know he’d keep his seat warm.
@KingJames if you don’t want to take your throne with you I’ll take it..

It won’t be that easy to claim though. Garrett has some competition for the crown, from his own teammate, linebacker Christian Kirksey, who also tweeted out his willingness to hold down the fort as king of Cleveland, with the hope of renaming the city #Kirkoland.
Time for me to take the throne! #kirkoland

Earlier this month Kirksey promised that the Browns will make the playoffs this season. If he’s able to make good on that promise, he may just have the inside track on Garrett to take over the throne.
Not matter who seizes the king’s chair, LeBron’s departure leaves the Cavaliers in disarray, leaving no time like the present for the Browns to get things turned around. Safety Damarious Randall hopes the Browns can at least take over as the darling’s off the city.
