Speaking of Cleveland, how 'bout LeBron's wearing a Yankees cap to the Yanks-Tribe game last night? Why not just hold a press conference to say, "I'm signing with the Knicks in two years?" Has there ever been a bigger and more random slap in the face to an entire city of sports fans? Even if you're a Yankees fan, don't you have to hide this in a PLAYOFF GAME THAT'S IN CLEVELAND???? I'm still speechless. I'm without speech. We're within three years of Knicks GM Anucha Browne Sanders introducing Bron-Bron to the New York press as Spike Lee sobs happily in the background.)Did Simmons miss the part where Craig Sager called LeBron on being a front runner? He grew up a Cowboys, Yankees and Bulls fan (I hate fans like him). But I got no beef with him representing the team he roots for- that's fine. But it looked like LeBron was taken aback by how angry some of the Cleveland fans were and was he looked kinda shocked at their reaction (cause we've all known he's been a Yankees fan for years), like he was suprised we'd take offense. He probably thought he was being playful, but it really was almost insulting. He's Ohio's favorite son right now and he's wearing the opposing teams' hat in Cleveland... He shouldn't have done it. Root for your team, but don't wear their shit here. He misjudged the situation, but who cares?
As for Simmons saying LeBron is going to sign with the Knicks.... why? If he showed up to a Browns-Cowboys game wearing Dallas cap, would Simmons think that LBJ is signing with the Mavs? I doubt it. The Cavs just built at state of the art practice facility. LeBron is building a giant house with a freaking casino. The Knicks stink. They are a terrible franchise (Simmons even references the sexual harrassment case). Why would anyone want to play for that organization?
The Yankee cap means nothing. Calm down.
