LeBron makes own voice heard amongst angry Clevelanders

lebron decision

The Cleveland fan base made its point.

But LeBron James made his, too.

After scoring 38 points to lead the Miami Heat to a 118-90 win against his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, James made it considerably tough to believe his infamous summer decision to take his talents to South Beach was the wrong one.

And as much as it might have pained the long-suffering sports city, Cleveland endured the evidence for the better part of Thursday night.

And it coincidentally, it was the game where Matthew Bellamy (you know that guy) wore his Lebron Miami Heat jersey in order to be a douche and piss off fans. It worked.
