The Backlash Begins

In 2010 Cleveland burned jerseys and penned strongly-worded comic sans letters. Most fans in Miami mocked those in Ohio for their reaction to the departure of LeBron James. Now the shoe is on the other foot, well, it's basically the same thing.

As you can see, the level of hysteria around this decision has reached a feverishly high level. An announcement was expected at 3:30 p.m. ET, and actually crashed in anticipation, but that ended up not happening.

Which is why fans, cops, and the rest of the sports world continues to wait.

Some are just doing it outside of an empty house.

Meanwhile in Cleveland:
Clevelanders out for a lunch break got a side of surprise with their meals today when news broke that LeBron James was going back to the Cavs. Much horn-honking was required. There was plenty of walking around and gawking at assembled news crews.

And don't forget yelling "The King has returned!"
