Did Lebron James overstep the mark?
"CLEVELAND — Maybe LeBron James stepped over the line with his allegiance to the New York Yankees.
A day after the Indians routed the Yankees 12-3 in their AL playoff opener Thursday night, the buzz around town wasn't about Cleveland's offensive power surge or pitcher C.C. Sabathia's gutty performance.
Instead, fans jammed sports talk radio lines and Internet message boards, crying foul over their frustration with the NBA superstar's traitorous appearance in the stands wearing a Yankees cap.
"The guy is the face of Cleveland sports and he's not even rooting for a team that's 100 feet from the building he plays in," said Adam Burke, who was waiting outside the left-field gate for Game 2 Friday."

people really need to mind their own ****in business. Who cares who his favorite baseball team is.
It's this kind of moronic scrutiny that makes a player like LJ tell a city to go screw themselves as he walks out the door.

he was a Yankee fan before he was in the NBA ans is friends with Derek jeter. Why can't he be a fan of NY even though he works in Cleveland?
It would be different he he was wearing a Laker hat

Well, you are trying to stir the pot. But you're absolutely right, people here would be going just as nuts.

Cleveland fans will be kissing his ass come contract time.
And besides, who really gives a rat's ass what hat he was wearing.

Completely different situation since LeBron is born and raised in Ohio. He should he hated on just the same as all the other Yankee "fans".
