Lebron hated?
 
I went to the Jazz-Cavaliers game where Lebron light the Jazz up for 33 points. I was surprised at how much he was booed during the game. Is this typical in your arenas? Utah fans are notoriously obnoxious so I didn't know if it was just us or if most places boo James.

Most stars on each team are booed continuously in Boston.

1) Booing is a sign of respect
2) Jazz have a great, frenzied crowd that actively boos opponents.

There really were plenty of boos to counter Cleveland's fans there. I hope we keep it up. It really bothered me when Jordan got a following in the playoffs at Utah.

I remember a couple of years ago maybe LeBron got a standing ovation in Utah after he dropped 51 points. So I guess they don't hate him that bad.

That's what I'm talking about. Makes me mad. I guess its ok as long as it stays a statement of "well done, you torched us" and doesn't change into a "we love you" its good.

For the record, I was one of the Jazz fans that booed Fisher during his first game back. When Boozer leaves Utah the boos will be deafening at his first game back.

Well it wasn't a LeBron lovefest, just people standing up, clapping respectfully after a great game. It just shows that crowd appreciates good basketball.

I was mad at the boos for Fish. That guy embodied everything we want out of a Jazz player, and I was glad for what he gave us. Did he "get out of his contract" for good reason? I don't know. All I know is LHM worked it out. Booing expatriates is great, and if Boozer leaves, sure, I'll boo him. But not in the Fisher case!

Edit: I was also at that game, and cheered with others when Fish made shots.

Was Karl Malone booed when he came back to Utah when he was with the Lakers?

Houston cheered Kobe, and we'll cheer Iverson and Lebron this year too.

The Toyota Center stays classy.
