All over Cleveland, people are sporting anti-Lebron gear -- including the staff at several restaurants ... including The Winking Lizard (above) and Harry Buffalo (below) ... both situated near the arena.

In fact, the Harry Buffalo has issued a temporary ban on anyone wearing a LeBron jersey.

first of all, all you people need to chill the F**********out he's human just like all of us. so why are all of YOUUUU yes YOOUUU (if you are against him) acting so ignorant for? huh? its a change in his career, yes it is a big change and not everyone may agree with his decision but maybe he did it for the money or maybe he did it for the fame, or maybe just maybe have any of you thought about it just for one second why he made this decision to move to the HEATS? did any of you take it into consideration as to why he made this decision?


you know what IT DOESNT EVEN MATTER! wanna know why because at the end of the day it might be just a game to ya that ya enjoy watching but in all reality these games and this basketball thing that hes doing and all this fame, is whats putting food in his mouth, and clothes on his body, and a roof over his head. but NOOO none of you think of it in that way soo much that ya wanna put ya two sence into this decision he has made which is none of you guys business. how do you guys think his family feels? about watching a game and fearing of whats going to happen to him? would you guys want that to be done to you or someone you love and care about? NOOPE!!! i doubt it!.....


And im here in the BRONX, New York and i look at all these people from Cleveland and i just say to myself what a shame, you people should really be ashamed of your selves your setting such a bad example of what cleveland is really about... smh and the girl up there ^^^ from cleveland thanks thats how all of you should be, take her advice... : )


and one more thing all you people are such HYPOCRITES! because none of you were saying that when he was in CLEVELAND right or wrong ??? huuuuhhh ? NOOOOWWWW all of a sudden from one day to anouther all of you are against him ???? hmmm what are the ooodddsss..... if you guys should be mad at anyone you should be mad at yourselves..... TRUE STORY... have a nice day..

It must suck being that pathetic, I'm talking about the loser Cleveland 'fans' who now hate the man for doing what EVERY other basketball star has done. He just went where the most money was, if they want him back...be able to pay more than what Miami did and that means a raise in ticket prices. Or the other option..Shut up and get over it.

backfire    

It's pathetic that people don't have a life and feel they own a player like LeBron. Why don't they wear t-shirts and protest for Universal Health care so we are able to save lives? No one made t-shirts against Maddof when he took retirement money from millions. But this is America and everyone is interested in looking fake and getting vested in trivial hating.

Listen I'm not Labron James, but if I was I would distribute satan t-shirts all over Clevland featuting a picture of my entire azz! I really don't believe that Labron James really gives a hoot about what "THE FANS" think about him (neither do all the other Rich and Famous athletes unless it begins to affect his Bank Account. (catch my drift?) Labron James is one of the richest and most talented athletes on earth, so why should he care what the Clevland Fans think about him? Frankly, he now plays for The Miami Heat! Look at Labron James, does he looks like he's not getting any sleep? "I REST MY CASE." So sincere, Michael Sydney Perkins

No Lebron jersey's allowed? Wow, the Cavs management apparently has really thin skin. What do the fans have to be mad about anyway? I could see it if he was demanding a trade, but he was an UFA and exercised his rights to sign elsewhere. I'm not a NBA fan, but this kind of thing happens all the time in the NHL. Even in hockey mad Canada, we'll usually give the player respect for the time he spent here, not begrudge a business decision. Sounds to me like Cavs fans need to grow up and become knowledgeable fans.
