LeBron James is about as popular in Cleveland as Art Modell was after he moved the Browns to Baltimore in 1995. I think everyone expected him to leave Cleveland, but the way he did was inexcusable, especially for someone born and raised in Akron, Ohio.
His handlers contacted ESPN and created a TV special called The Decision. In it, he announced he was going to the Miami Heat. Last night, James and the Heat returned to Cleveland, where he was met with a chorus of boos, creative signs, and many middle fingers. The Heat whipped the Cavaliers and James scored 38 points. However, with three superstars in their lineup, the Heat are a mediocre 11-8. Here's hoping they miss the playoffs. Here is a photo of LeBron at last night's game doing his patented chalk toss. Yahoo cropped it to erase all the middle fingers James was receiving. (On a side note, check out the guy in the orange sweater. Do you think the girl next to him gives him the time of day if he doesn't have money for courtside seats?
