So tonight, Cavs fans everywhere are organizing themselves to hate LeBron in the same way, at the same time. One site that's been getting a ton of attention as put together an entire chart of what to do and when.
Throughout the game: Whenever LeBron is introduced, laugh as loud as you can
Wade – Boo
Arroyo – Boo
Z – (We’d encourage Cheering)
LeBron – Laugh as loud as you can
12:00-6:00 1st Quarter
Whenever LeBron has the ball or is at the free throw line the chant is: NO-Ring-King (To the beat of “Lets-Go-Cavs”)
6:00-0:00 1st Quarter
Whenever LeBron has the ball or is at the free throw line the chant is:Ak-Ron Hates-You (Clap, Clap, ClapClapClap)
It's kind funny that the chant sheet is in comic sans (for those who know, it's because of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert). Oh, and speaking of Gilbert… he's not letting it go either. He's dropping tons of money on his own lawyers to pursue a tampering case against the Heat.
And the "Laugh at LeBron" thing is something that started on Twitter and has picked up a lot of steam. I like the idea of laughing at LeBron. The idea I like better is no one showing up at the game. THAT would be the most effective shot at him. But that would never happen. Those fans are showing up. And in a rare moment of agreement with Phil Jackson… they're going to make the Q even more obnoxious than it already is.
Hey… I've enjoyed Miami's problems so far because they were all a bunch of pompous pricks about this whole thing. There wasn't a shred of class involved in constructing this team so their early season struggles are a tasty bit of comeuppance to me.
BUT… at some point Cleveland will have to just move on. I'm hoping that after this initial meeting, they will start to do so. There's really no point in ripping your hair over it anymore.
By the way, if you want that shirt at all, you can get it here.
