LeBron James

'Forgiven' Shirts Explode

Website Breaks from Traffic Eruption

EXCLUSIVE

0711-lebron-james-jersey-twitter-getty-01A t-shirt website selling LeBron James "For6iven" shirts was bombarded with cyber-traffic in the moments following 'Bron's announcement ... breaking the site ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We spoke to the owner of Fresh Brewed Tees -- who tells us the demand for the shirts SKYROCKETED ... and in the first 5 minutes after the announcement, the site crashed due to a sudden influx of traffic. 

The owner, Tony Madalone, says the site has only been selling the shirts for a few days -- but judging from the overwhelming interest, he expects to sell more than 10,000 shirts .

... just as soon as he can fix his site.

Lets be honest here. No one was buying that shirt. TMZ decided to post this to get people to buy the shirt. No doubt one of their buddies owns the company making it.

Forgiven but not forgotten. Wait 'til LeBron doesn't perform (for whatever reason) or doesn't do something owner or fans like -- they'll boo him or shout "Go back to Miami!"

People are fickle and, trust me, Cleveland was NOT happy (remember the jersey burning and owner's snarky comments???) when LeBron betrayed them by going to Miama 4 years ago.
