LeBron James bows to Cleveland Browns’ legend Jim Brown pregame (VIDEO)

Jim Brown

Jim Brown


The last time the city of Cleveland celebrated a professional sports title of any kind, it was because of Jim Brown. The legendary running back was at the heart of the 1964 Browns that won a title beating the Baltimore Colts.

Brown was sitting courtside for Game 3 in Cleveland, and LeBron James acknowledged him with a little bow pregame.

Classy move. And apparently good karma as the Cavaliers got off to a good start and held on in the end to beat the Warriors and take a 2-1 series lead in the NBA Finals.

Note to Mike Breen: If you say James Brown we all think of the Godfather of Soul. If he’s alive and sitting courtside, we’ve got a much bigger story on our hands.
