T-Shirts Begging Lebron to “Come Home” Given Out Last Night in Cleveland
When Lebron James made the decision to publicly embarrass the city of Cleveland by breaking their collective hearts with a national television special, I was certain that they would despise him forever…and then reality kicked in. As much as Clevelanders may want to hate King James; they can’t help but admit they need him desperately.
While I was walking into Quicken Loans arena, I encountered a large group of Cavalier fans who were passing out free t-shirts printed: “COME HOME LEBRON”, complete with his number from the good ol’ days. The lime-green shirts had quite a presence among the crowd, indicating that much of the seething rage demonstrated by the city during the “jersey-burning” period; has dissipated.
