Bron-Bron's choice of headwear? A Yankee cap.
SI.com reported on it and called him 'LeBronx Bomber'. Cute. Not so cute were the expletives being rained down on the greatest NBA player ever to bounce a basketball in Cleveland. What on earth was he thinking? This would have been like Tom Brady showing up at a crucial Red Sox game wearing a Yankee hat. Have a think about that for a second. I know Brady was photographed in Manhattan wearing a Yankee cap, I am discounting that, imagine him showing up at Fenway wearing one of those ugly NYs? The entire city of Boston would be enrolled in group therapy.
ESPN's Sports Guy on Bron-Bron's wardrobe for the evening at Jacobs field;
Speaking of Cleveland, how 'bout LeBron 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.
The fella's right, stupid move on Le Bron's part, or, if anything, a completely crass move, if it wasn't the beginning of a slow extraction from his being in Cleveland, then it was just dumb, and ugly.
I tell ya, thank goodness gracious for the likes of Tedy Bruschi, Troy Brown and other class act athletes who 'get' what it means to be a role model in a given community.
Here's to another Tribe dismantling of the Yankees tonight. If you haven't seen Faustino Carmona pitch yet, you are in for a treat.
