Default CNN: Clevelanders laughing as LeBron loses

When the Dallas Mavericks finished off the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, the happiness in Dallas may have been eclipsed in only one place, Cleveland, the city that Heat star LeBron James left to take his talents to South Beach.

CNN affiliate WOIO-TV in Cleveland had a one-world headline on its sports page under a picture of James holding up his Heat jersey: "LOSER!"

"LeBron James still has no rings," the site's story began.

Cleveland.com quickly jumped on James' failure to bring a championship to Miami, something he promised would happen multiple times when he and former Toronto Raptor Chris Bosh joined Heat superstar Dwayne Wade in Miami.

The site posted a video of James, Wade and Bosh made as Miami celebrated their arrival last July.

"It looks even sillier after the Dallas Mavericks clinched the NBA title with their win at Miami tonight," the site says. "Hear James say, 'The way we're gonna challenge each other to get better in practice, once the game starts, I mean it's gonna be easy.'

"Best of all, hear James count up of how many championships Miami will win. No limit."

Cavs fans may be chuckling over that Monday morning, but Yahoo! Sports Dan Wetzel writes they were laughing at James as they watched from a Cleveland bar during Sunday night's game.

"A crowd of Clevelanders gathered here to watch their onetime hero turned all-time traitor, and with each disinterested LeBron offensive possession, each failed LeBron chase down of Jason Terry, each embarrassing LeBron crunch-time turnover, the prevailing emotion was simple.

"Laughter.

"They weren’t hating LeBron here. They were laughing at him," Wetzel writes.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was among the first to congratulate the Mavs, posting on his Twitter account: "Congrats to Mark C. & entire Mavs org. Mavs NEVER stopped & now entire franchise gets rings. Old Lesson for all: There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE."

Avon, Ohio, Cavs fan Nathan Obral, quoted on NBA.com, could have been speaking for many of the basketball fans of northeast Ohio:

"Congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks for slaying the forces of evil tonight. You saved the NBA and did Cleveland proud," Obral was quoted as saying.

Even a former Cavalier, Los Angeles Clippers guard Mo Williams, was happy to see his old teammate James without a championship ring.

"Dallas just healed my HEART," Williams tweeted.

Cleveland Cavaliers, isn't that the team who had the worst streak in NBA history? They're embarrassing themselves. Lebron hasn't talked bad about you.

They have two top 5 picks this year and cap space. Chances are they will at least be competitive next year.

Duma is mad why would you pretend being any close to a Nash fan when all you post about is Lebron James? You are the one embarrassing.

Maybe you would think that... If you started watching the NBA last year... or maybe in 2002. But, anyone with a firm grasp on NBA history would never say something THIS stupid. The Cavs' franchise may have the same number of rings as James, but it has been anything but a 'bottom dweller' throughout the last 25 years.

Second, that 'pathetic owner' bought the No. 1 pick in the draft for around $8 million. Give me that kind of owner over a guy that cuts costs any day of the week.

Lastly, those 'pathetic fans' finished with the No. 2 best attendance in the league this past season with a team that was second to last. Again, if that is 'pathetic,' what do you call the rest of the league?

0-for-3... would you like to try again?

They gotta laugh now. The Miami trio isnt going anywhere and they are only going to get better. What else do people expect them to do? They know that its only a matter of time before it gets ugly.
