Heat Stroke: Don't boo, laugh

What do you think will happen when LeBron James enters Quicken Loans Arena Thursday night? What do you think will happen when his name is announced during introductions. What do you think will happen the first time he touches the ball?

Boo. BOO. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OO. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOO!

Something like that.

But there's a movement that has a different idea. And if you ask me, a better one. Don't boo. Laugh. Instead of the universal sound for audience disapproval, confuse the heck out him with some chuckles, giggles and loud HA-HAs, Nelson-style.

It comes from the Twitter account @LaughAtLeBron. The idea, is this: "Let's flip the script on LeBron people. He's expecting crowds booing him. Why? We all need to LAUGH at him. Dec. 2nd." Sounds innovative, if you ask me.

Right now, the group has almost 400 followers, which surely isn't enough to sway an entire arena that's ready to boo their heads off to laugh instead. People have been waiting months to take their seat Dec. 2 and unleash the loudest, meanest, most devastating chorus of boos known to history. And LeBron is ready for it. He knows it's coming. That's why laughing could throw him.

Heck, why not take it even further? Why not REALLY confuse him and applaud him? Cheer him, even. Chant his name. Well, let's not kid ourselves here. The laughing thing is a pretty big longshot. I think it's more likely for my dog to walk over, shake my hand and say, "Hello Royce" in a funny British accent than for Cavs fans to cheer LeBron.

But honestly, with the way the Heat are playing, it really might not be that hard to laugh at them. It almost might even come naturally.

He's been coddled forever, treats those who work for him or his organizations like crap, and thinks the world is here to do his bidding. He'll be bankrupt by the time he's 40.

The only thing to do is laugh at this guy.  Is he serious? Lebron is a clown, and needs to be laughed at.  If you dont blame Lebron for leaving then you are a bigger clown than he is.  He knows he screwed up by leaving.  He would have made more money in Cleveland than anywhere else plus they were willing to bring in anyone they wanted.  He had an entire city and state at his mercy.  To give it all up and still not be on one of the top teams in the east is a joke.  He deserves to be laughed at.  This coming from a guy who lives in Pittsburgh and despises Cleveland.  He wants to be mentioned with guys like bird jordan and kobe?  HAHA! They didnt leave their teams in search of someone to win them a title.  Those guys made their own winners.  Maybe it took a few years but they got it done because they are all winners!  Lebron is uber talented and I respect his game and he is entertaining to watch.  But he is far from a winner and will never have the class of a Jordan or Bird.  So please laugh at him when he comes home.  He knows he blew it and has to be regretting it.

They can laugh all they want, he'll still be laughing all the way to the bank.  Sounds like Cav fans just have their panties in a wad.  I don't blame LeBron for leaving.
