By Marcus Vanderberg 

You can add the Peoria Chiefs to the list of folks who are having fun at the expense of LeBron James.

The Chicago Cubs Class A affiliate is having a LeBron James NBA Championship Replica Giveaway night on Thursday.

See … because he doesn’t have a … yeah, you get the joke.

“Replica rings” will be handed out by stadium workers as fans enter the park, according to Chiefs spokesman Nathan Baliva.

The Chiefs will honor the Chicago Bills and their six NBA titles by showing video clips and audio highlights from their championship run in the ’90s. The players will take the field to Sirius, the infamous Alan Parsons Project song used during Bulls introductions.

If that wasn’t bad enough,the team is “looking into” skipping the fourth inning to poke fun at James, who came up short during the fourth quarters of the NBA Finals.

“We aren’t sure if the league will allow it,” Peoria president Rocky Vonachen said in a statement. “But if LeBron doesn’t need to show up for the fourth, maybe we won’t either.”

Stay classy, Peoria.
