Braylon Edwards: Who Knows If LeBron Even Likes The Cavaliers
Sep 10, 2008 5:52 PM EST
LeBron James wore a Yankees' hat and fraternized with Terrell Owens before the Browns played the Cowboys in Cleveland on Sunday.
"It didn't bother me," said Braylon Edwards. "As I've gotten to know LeBron, LeBron isn't a Cleveland guy. LeBron only plays for the Cavaliers, and who knows if he even likes the Cavaliers? He doesn't like the Indians. He doesn't like the Browns. He's a guy from Akron who likes everybody but his hometown."
"I don't know how that's possible, but it is what it is, and he is who he is. You know, it's LeBron."
Now this has bothered me in the past. I think really for PR reasons if LeBron is going to like teams outside of Cleveland he need to keep it to himself. I don't know about you guys but think of what it would be like if back in the day Reggie was hanging out with Neal O'Donnell before a Colts-Steelers game. I would have been a little pissed off. OTOH, I wouldn't be mad if Reggie was a Steelers fan and rooted for them in the privacy of his own home, just the fact that he (or LeBron) actually took the time to show themselves in public fraternizing with what most of his fans would see as the "enemy."
