The Cavs may have displayed little fight and less heart during LeBron's return to Cleveland, but Cleveland fans admirably and proudly displayed their displeasure with James during the game.
And it appears that fervent hatred isn't limited to the geographic confines Northeast Ohio.
According to the NY Post, LeBron was out for dinner in Miami with friend/manager Maverick Carter. A group of about 30 Browns fans, in town for the game against the Dolphins, happened to be at the restaurant and unleashed a furious chant of, "Traitor, traitor, traitor," before being asked to leave.
But they didn't stop there. According to the story, they waited outside for LeBron, who conveniently avoided the awaiting mob by ducking out a back door.
Love you, Cleveland fans. Don't ever change.
