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.

What a blow out.. see THIS is what happens when you treat your former star-player disrepectfully....

did chicago treat jordan like that when he left? did the owner totally go off calling him a traitor , etc? he just proved he was a slave-master.. and lebron told him to finally after 7 years to kiss it!

They booed the heck out of them, and then The Heat stomped them into the ground. Hang up your coats, Cleveland. It's going to be a long season.

NFL fans wouldn't dare do this to the Baltimore Ravens,
except to say that they haven't won the Superbowl in
9 seasons, and this is their 10'th try at making it there.

I only saw white people with t-shirts and signs. Lebron has joined the ranks with President Obama as the two most hated Black Men in America. Sorry white people they did not what was best for their family(Lebron), or the country(Obama).

Gosh...A sport without sportsmanship. That's what these people in Cleveland represent. Wonder how many of them have a job where they would HAVE to be locked in to indefinitely. How idiotic.

Meanwhile, James has behaved like a true gentleman. He sets a great example.

Good God Cleveland...move on already! Is this all the city has going for it...Lebron James? You all make it seem like there is absolutely nothing else Cleveland has to offer but this overhyped athlete. Really Cleveland? Can you blame him for wanting to leave if this is all the place has going for it. Get over and move on.

Cleveland People Lebron is not your slave, you arrogant people. I live in Europe where nobody know about the Cleavland before Lebron play there, he put your team and the city on the map so you should me thankful, now your city is in the place where it belongs. "NO WHERE" lEBRON can play basketball where ever he wants. You arrogant pricks.
I would do the same thing and live in Miami on the Beach enjoying the life with my family.
