Controversy Loves LeBron James

…Even if he has nothing to do with it. Sporting News has the 411: “In the wake of LeBron James’ decision to leave Cleveland for Miami, many fans took to the streets to burn their No. 23 jerseys. But many fans banded together to make sure their LeBron-related gear wouldn’t be wasted. A plan was put in place to donate unwanted James apparel to homeless shelters in Miami. As it turns out, the well-intentioned idea might not be able to be carried out after all. ’It’s on hold right now,’ Rita Clark of the Miami Coalition for the Homeless told BrowardPalmBeach.com. ‘There’s a lot of politics around this.’ ’It seemed very well-intentioned, but it’s not gonna happen right away,’ Clark says. ‘I’m trying to help them be better-received here in Miami.’”

    First. Cleveland is sending a Trojan horse down there. Having every bum in the city wearing LeBron jersey’s. Cleveland is classless, exploiting people who have nothing to show out.

    um… why is Miami refusing to accept these clothes? forget basketball, we’re talking about clothing the needy.

    Lbj sucks worse than adam morrison, and is one of the biggest traitors in NBA history. He deserves to be 80 overall in games

    Funny thing is, there’s really nothing that controversial about LeBron James. At all.

    LBJ news is old these days. Move over as Kevin Durant will light up the league for the next decade.

  • Robb

    Not as much as Lebron loves himself.

    Kobe > LeBron
    End of Discussion, at least Kobe is loyal to Lakers, unlike dis one dude i heard from Cleveland who left his hometown team for a championship…

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I agree with H here.

  • C.A

    I too find the C word offensive.
    I despise the word ‘Cavaliers’, yuck, horrible imagery.

  • Ben

    Lebron James doesn’t actually exist

  • http://Slamonline.com Pippen Ain’t Easy

    its literally stupid if they refuse them because they’re miami fans. they’re poor, so they need help badly

  • r13

    You obviously don’t know many homeless folks. Most have enough clothes, clothes aren’t hard to come by. They need decent food, cash and a place to live. Kinda like you. No one is ‘begging’ for Lebron jerseys.

  • Kobenatik

    whos this Lebron James? I thought he is Paris Hilton type celebrity?? i saw him on that decision show, bad show anyway

  • http://www.borntocompete.com Money$hot

    This has gotten ridiculous, why can’t they just donate the jerseys to the homeless in Cleveland, I mean are the homeless in cleveland to good to wear lebron jerseys; secondly u don’t play the game for loyalty u play to win the game, if Lebron sucked Cleveland would have no problem trading him they would not cared if he was the hometown kid. But, Cleveland sucked so lebron left as a free agent in search of a championship.
