Angry Cleveland Cavs fans torched LeBron James jerseys after the NBA superstar announced on ESPN “The Decision” that he was joining the Miami Heat.
Perhaps a better name for the spectacle would have been ” The Defection. ”
After losing James to Miami, the Cavs worked out a deal with the Heat, acquiring two future first-round draft picks. One in 2013 and one in 2017 plus the Miami Heat’s 2012 second-round pick from New Orleans.
The Cavs also have the right to swap first-round picks with the Heat in 2012. Cleveland also picked up a trade exception that could be worth up to $16 million.
