Not sure who the bigger dumbass here is: the guy who wore the Miami Heat jersey of LeBron James to a Cleveland Indians game or the fans who got sucked into this obvious need for attention? Our favorite part of the article from ESPN is this line: James’ recent departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Heat caused a lot of anger in the city.
No, really? This from the sports network that made Cavalier fans the laughing stock of the world with their one hour LeBron “Decision” Special.
A fan wearing a Miami Heat jersey of LeBron James drew the ire of the crowd at a Cleveland Indians game and was escorted out of the ballpark.
Fans in the left-field bleachers chanted obscenities and pointed at the man Wednesday night during the sixth inning of the game between the Indians and New York Yankees. Hundreds of fans joined in before security led the man out of Progressive Field. As he left, some fans followed him toward the gate with more derisive chants.
James’ recent departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Heat caused a lot of anger in the city.
Hell hath no fury like a billionaire scorned! No sooner had LeBron “Everybody, Look at Me!” James decided to pack his money bags and move to Miami then Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert started badmouthing his ex. Wonder if this would have happened if LeBron had decided to stay in Cleveland? Probably not.
Angered and betrayed by LeBron James’ decision to leave for Miami, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert accused the NBA’s MVP of quitting during the playoffs. Gilbert, who posted a letter to Cavs fans on the team’s website shortly after James announced his plans to sign with the Heat, told The Associated Press late Thursday night that it’s “accountability time” for James.
“He has gotten a free pass,” Gilbert said in a phone interview with The AP. “People have covered up for [James] for way too long. Tonight we saw who he really is.” Gilbert said James quit on the Cavs during their second-round series against the Boston Celtics, who rallied from a 2-1 deficit to eliminate Cleveland.
“He quit,” Gilbert said. “Not just in Game 5, but in Games 2, 4 and 6. Watch the tape. The Boston series was unlike anything in the history of sports for a superstar.” The Cavaliers were beaten by 32 points in Game 5. During the game, James appeared distracted and uninterested, often glaring at Cleveland’s coaches as the Cavs tried to foul to get back into the game in the second half. James also made some puzzling postgame comments, saying he had “spoiled” people with his play over seven seasons.
