Personally, I don’t see the big deal. I don’t think Cleveland fans should get over LeBron James or anything like that, but there is no need to scrutinize every little thing the guy does or who happens to be a fan of him. With that said, given the hostile reaction Cleveland fans still have toward James, it probably wasn’t in Cribbs’ best judgment to post the picture after being provided the seats by…the Cavs owner.
