While we’re all adjusting to life without LeBron James, everyone seems to be coping with his narcissistic behavior in different ways. From burning #23 jerseys in the streets of Ohio to ripping the giant Witness billboard off the building across from the Q, everyone is taking out their frustrations and openly displaying their hatred for the new Squire of Cleveland.
But it’s not just loyal Cavaliers fans that share a common distaste for [he who shall no longer be named]. I was approached on Saturday morning via email by a gentleman by the name of Dan Hershberg from PhillyPhaithful.com – someone with no ties to the city of Cleveland – who conveyed his sympathy for the city of Cleveland saying, “Like you, we in Philadelphia spent the better part of the last 48 hours trying not to choke on our vomit as the self-important, ego maniacal LeBron James show took up way too much of our television screen and collective sporting mindset. And while we didn’t have to directly deal with the aftermath of losing our franchise player in a gutless defection…we understand what it feels like when things don’t go your way. Like most of the rest of the nation, we think that Queen James took the easy way out. Instead of helping his loyal, hometown team reach the ultimate prize, he pretended to make his departure about winning when it was clearly all about him.” (If you’re anything like me, you just read that and thought to yourself, ‘Hey, I like this guy already!’).
He went on to unveil a new anti-LeBum t-shirt (seen below) called ‘Ringless’. The t-shirt is available at PhillyPhaithful.com and will sell at $19.99 apiece. I strongly suggest checking out these shirts and rockin’ your Cleveland spirit while we remind the sports nation that we will push forward without LeCoward.
