I’ll take “things that will not go over well” for $200, Alex…

Cleveland fans will never forgive LeBron James. They see his move to Miami as a betrayal and abandonment, his public announcement of it the ultimate insult.

LeBron isn’t looking for their for forgivenss, but he tweeted (when anwering fans questions) that he misses them.

Some will say this is just him trying to repair his image, and Clevelanders will not care. But I think this really is sincere. I think he does love Akron and Cleveland and sees what he did as purely a business move. Others may not see it that way, but he does. And Cleveland fans were good to him for many years.

Which is part of the reason they will not be forgiving.
