Once again, another Cavaliers player has been stupid enough to root for a Cleveland sports rival. Last night Shaquille O’Neal cheered on the Cleveland Browns biggest rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers after they won their Sunday Night Football game against the San Diego Chargers.
There’s no way of knowing how Cleveland fans will react to Shaq’s cheering of the Steelers. But if history does indeed repeat itself, it will not be pretty. I will give Shaq a bit of credit and say that at least he’s not stupid enough to wear a Yankees hat to an Indian/Yankees game. Nobody’s that stupid, are they?
If the picture doesn’t remind you, LeBron wore a Yankees hat to an Indians/Yankees playoff game in 2007. Sending the city of Cleveland to an immediate uproar. Many die hard Tribe fans despise James to this day because of the incident.
Will Shaq’s cheering of the Steelers piss off the city of Cleveland?
