Back in early July, we wrote a blog post about the events that unfolded around NBA star LeBron James’ televised announcement that he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for rival team Miami Heat in the 2010-2011 season.
Since then, LeBron and his PR and marketing firm have done their best to combat the flak he’s received for dropping his beloved fans in Cleveland. Rightfully so, Cleveland was led by a player mentioned in the same breath as the great MJ and were once a team who consistently made playoffs.
This TV spot released by LeBron James in collaboration with Nike was meant to put an end to the Cavalier fan frustration once and for all.
Pretty good … but we’re gonna bet he didn’t count on an epic Cleveland Cavalier fan-made rebuttal.
Now watch fan-made video response:
Side Note: The Miami Heat currently are 6-4, the Cavaliers are 5-5 in standings.
