They exist! Burnt LeBron jersey rises from the ashes

- July 11th, 2014


On Friday, LeBron James decided to go back to Cleveland to sew up his tattered reputation.

It turns out he’ll need to fix a few jerseys, too.

First on his to-do list is this guy’s patchy LBJ Cavs jersey.

When LeBron left, videos of angry Cleveland fans burning their No. 23 jerseys were posted online:

The reaction from the hard-done-by fan base clearly irked the King. It seems to have played a major role in him returning to restore the love in his home state.

What’s surprising about this fan’s decision, is the fact that A) he decided to wear this out in public and B) he didn’t burn the entire jersey in anger, kept it, and brought it out just for this exact moment.

(Note: We’re only assuming the uniform was burned because we don’t have confirmation. But, man, it looks burnt.)

You have to admire that kind of forgiveness from a fan but, seriously, someone get this guy a freshly pressed jersey. Stat.
