Of Course Cleveland Responded To LeBron James’ New Nike Ad

LeBron James Rise commercial

By now, you should be aware that folks in Cleveland will respond to anything that LeBron does for the rest of his life. If LeBron takes a crap, someone in Cleveland will say the crap wasn’t good enough. And when LeBron passes away, someone in Cleveland will say he quit on life. So when LeBron’s new Nike ad hit the airwaves, we all knew it was a matter of time before Cleveland responded.

  1. LMAO! Don't care about you know who but I luv this commerical so much better than Nikes!! rotf rotf rotf….in ur face you know who and Nikes..im buying Adidas!!!

  2. Man this is like crazy!!!!!!! Nike…….. I'm done!!! You support quitters.!!!!!!!!!! I would rather penny loafers on the baskettball court!!!! If anyone has a problem with that!!! My number is 501-554-1074.!!!! The name is Bobby!! Ko…..be, Ko…….be!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. My God. Get over it. OK Yes we all know Lebron should have done everything differently, but Jesus it's been 4 MONTHS now. No wonder LeBron didn't want to play for Cleveland anymore. With fans like them, who needs enemies.

  4. I am done with nikeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!if they are going to present looser good for then
    now we have to buy adidas

  5. I am done with Nikeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!if they are going to present looser good for then
    now we have to buy Adidas

  6. For the confused person who used God, Jesus, and 'The Quitter' all in the same thought process, here's a little insight for you… ethics, morals, values, & integrity ALL go together with LOYALTY. Do you know what any of these words mean?? Or are you as clueless as lebron himself?? Seriously!! CLEVELAND DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT where he plays!!! It's NOT what he did, it's HOW he did it, STUPID!! No one, including yourself I'm sure has ever kept a REAL job by giving a false resume!! If being a loyal Cleveland fan is being an enemy to 'the state of lebron' then so be it! IGNORANCE IS BLISS!!! GO CAVS!!

  7. Yeah Nike should make good shoes not commercials. They should repair their shoe image not somebody's ego. Shoes compared to Adidas is bad, the soles comeup faster and expires faster. Its a fact! Talk to a lot of users and see what they think.

  8. be honest its A good thing he did what he did.. b/c i doubt half OF the Cavs he brought to the games werent around before he came…. since all these fans are talking about loyalty.. hahaa.. thts y in the 02' season and prior all the ticket sales were down.. suprised they didnt move the team like they did Seattle Supersonics… hell the best sidekick Cavs got for him is Mo WILLIAMS … THT WAS A JOKE AND KOBE GETS PAU GASOL ( TOP 2 ALL-AROUND BIG MEN IN THE GAME..) COME ON BE SERIOUS..

  9. to be honest its A good thing he did what he did… and left and went to Miami…. b/c i doubt half OF the Cavs fans he brought to the games to fill the arena werent around before he came…. since all these fans are talking about loyalty.. hahaa.. thts y in the 02' season and prior all the ticket sales were down huge….(did they ever sell-out…besides the all-star game).. dan gibson just wants yall money.. owners don't care they aint going to neighborhoods to help out every weekend.. when yall purchase a ticket they chillen.. drinkin on ur tab.. now tht Lebron is gone he probably had to return his G-5 PLANE.. B/C SALES ARE DWN… I'M suprised they didnt move the team like they did Seattle Supersonics… hell the best sidekick Cavs got for him is Mo WILLIAMS (A point guard that couldn't even avg 5 asst for them) … THT WAS A JOKE AND KOBE GETS PAU GASOL ( TOP 2 ALL-AROUND BIG MEN IN THE GAME..) COME ON BE SERIOUS… ?

  10. The curious one says:

    Get over it Cleveland… Let it go… You guys said what you wanted to say. DROP IT ALREADY… Just fix your team like you should have done to get a winner there. All you can do now is just root for your Cavs when they play the Heat. If you guys win… great rub it in his face… But if you lose… Shut up and drop it.. He will just us it as motivation to crap on you guys even more!!

    Ok, so maybe the way Lebron did things was a bit rotten to Cleveland, but in the long run, the only one we have left at the end of the day to do what we dream of is ourselves, and that is what he is doing, trying to fulfill his dream. He obviously couldnt do it in Cleveland. So he went where he hopes he can, and I hope he can also. He is just a man, you people in Cleveland are the ones who put him up on the pedestal. Find someone else to glofify. Another post mentioned ticket sales before and after Lebron. That says it all right there, and now that he is gone, hmmmmmmm, what will become of all of those fans, gonna stay true to your team and support them the way you did when he was there, maybe a season or two, then that will get old.

    Lebron has skills,but his additude takes all that away. Cleveland should be happy as hell a poor sport like him left your town.You always got Bone Thugs,Right. Lebron is a cry baby in every since of the word. Walking off the court during the playoffs cause he didn't win. Oh poor baby, here's a tissue. I don't see the big deal. I HATE LEBRON. Anything making fun of him is good to me. I think it would be funny if the City of Cleveland OH truck with a wood chipper on the back and threw in the little puppet of Lebron. That would be awesome.

    Ok, so when is this going to end? Maybe Lebron left because he knew the same owner which ripped him wasn't going to put a real team around him to win championships. Maybe Cav's fans should have gotten the clue when Lebron said he was worried about being 31, having bad knees and no titles. What would any of us had done? We would have all left for a chance to win, play with friends, and be successful. If you deny that, then you are a liar. He took less money than he could have gotten elsewhere to have a BETTER chance to win. Maybe the owner of the Cav's should have put the same effort and passion in to getting ANYBODY to come to Cleveland so Lebron would stay. Blame your owner Cav's fans. If you believe the crap he is selling that they will win a title before Lebron, then give me some of what you are all smoking cause it must be damn good. If the owner couldn't get anyone for Lebron, then he won't get anyone to play without him there. This was Cleveland's Michael Jordan moment and tbe owner could not have screwed up more. And by the way, why is the press on Lebron? He only did what all writer's criticize athletes for, and that is taking less money and going to play with other stars to win titles and be successful. Isn't that what Lebron did. Look, the decision was dumb I know, but he made a decision that I would make based on the pieces that WERE NOT in Cleveland to win. Come to grips everyone. It's the phone ringing for all the haters, and it's reality calling. Pick up the phone all. I'm not a Cav's or Lebron fan, but for goodness sakes people come to reality cause it's nice over here.

    Slave? "Please," Lebron is just a spoiled little mamas boy who never grew up with any Male influence to teach him how to be a man. He never learned any morals. He acted just like a child and threw a fit and quit instead of pushing through a bad situation. He is a liar and knows no loyalty. They should make all pro athletes attend college so they are not so ignorant.

    You think Lebro could have attended college? He has been coddled all through school and probably could not even pass a high school equivalence exam. He has people watching his back and when he does get out on his own he leaves his old lady and goes and messes with hoes in these bars with his boys. He's no role model for sure and Karma is a bitch.

    None of you people know this man, and just because a person does not go to college does not mean that the person is ignorant or an idiot. As for morals, you should look into your own life.

    Excuse me! Lebron has worked harder to become the excellent athelete that he is at 20 something, than most of you knuckleheads ever will in your lifetimes. So don't question his character. Try accoplishing something in your life that people like you will envy, LOL.

  42. To the people of Cleveland you should be kissing that mans ass for bringing you POSITIVE NATIONAL exposer for the last 7 years. You also should be thankful that you had an opportunity to get an economical boost from him being in that city. Like Noah said "who vacations in Cleveland" Bottom line is he didnt owe you anything. No wonder your city nickname is "the mistake by the lake" and it fits you better now more than ever!

    You people don't get it. Lebron had every right to leave. No one in Cleveland denies that. He was loved and adored here. People and media handled him with kid gloves and ignored his faults. He ruled and he gave cleveland 7 years of awesome basketball. Instead of telling the Cavs and the fans the truth, that he did not think he could win a championship here, and thank them for there support. He screws the Cavs and fans, by waiting late into free agency to tell them so they can start making plans. At least Bosh had the decency to tell Toronto up front. "The Decision" obviously was a HUGE MISTAKE. Lebron made many promises he did not keep. People will give you slack as long as you are honest. So we have every right to be pissed off. By the way it may have been 4 months ago, but it has only been 5 games. It is Lebron, yes Lebron, he is the one who will not let it go. He has not stopped making comments, texts, and commerials about leaving. Cleveland fans are not the ones making comments, they are just responding to Lebron's. He just needs to shut up about his decision. But he and his boys keep shooting him in the foot with each and every comment.
    Also Miami fans don't even sellout every game. With those 3 on your team that is a crime.
    In the end Lebron will be as hated as Art Modell and John Elway are now and forever. There is nothing he can do to ever change that fact.

    Cleveland fans are over Lebron. They have a higher ave attendance so far this season than with Lebron. For those who don't live in the Cleveland area, you have no idea how hard we are rooting for the Cavs. The problem is that James can't get over it. He keeps throwing this in our face with his nike ad and the decision. Plus his other quips and tweets. Other than Dec 2nd, the fans won't care that deeply about him unless there's more crap like the nike ad. Lebron's posse can't get the same access in Miami like they had in Cleveland and Lebron won't get his stay over days in NY, NO, LA, Chicago, etc. with Pat Riley like he did with Cleveland's management. That's already a problem with him. Eventually, his transgressions will ruin whatever legacy he believes will be his. Such a shame, he'll never be revered as he was before the decision. Lebron, just keep referring to yourself in the third person and keep elaborating on how much we are all fortunate to witness your talents. I used to be abhorred by ihatelebronjames.com. But, if you pay attention to the crap that comes out of Lebron's mouth, there's a lot to be said for this site.

    Okay, i don't beleive how he left was right. I don't care if it did go to a worthy cause, it wasn't right. But really Cleveland, you knew what you were getting. Just move on and show the king, you didn't need him to win a champtionship. The best dagger in LB's heart would be you win it all this year. That my friend would hurt him more than some silly commercial. You don't own a player, but you can make a player a god if you give him too much exposure.

    The CAVS are so lucky he went away; a true blessing in disguise. Yeah, that's right. His ego and lack of team concept would have screwed up Byron Scott's new offensive system. Miami, you can have your MVP. We have a Coach of the Year who, as a player, won 3 championship rings. Scott forgot more about winning than the THE SPOILED ONE will ever know.

Good for LeBron, they are his talents and he can take them to South Beach or New York or the fucking Moon if he wants to. So suck it Cleveland, and when he leaves Miami they can be all pissed about it too.

    They suck as baseball, they suck at football, they suck at basketball (even with LeBron because no matter how good a single player is, if there isn't any supporting characters than its your fault for the superstar leaving) and now apparently they suck at being "fans" and human beings.

    Don't forget, this is just a sport. Just because someone has more talent at it than 99% of people (especially in Cleveland and thats including the other pro athletes) doesn't mean they are forced to stay in a situation that is never going to amount to anything. LeBron choose the rings over the money that both the Cavs and the Knicks were going to throw at him. So its time Cleveland gets over it and realizes that CLEVELAND SUCKS!!

    Go Miami! Go Steelers!

Hate is the root of all evil..Lebron is a man…to be treated as such…you made him your false idol

  68. I am from Akron, OH. I played at LeBron's rival high school. We even lived on the same street, although not at the same time. I've been a Cavs fan my whole life. Cavs fans: It's time to get over it. LeBron is a good guy. He doesn't drink, do drugs, no domestic violence, which is more than we can say for many star athletes. ESPN made a big deal out of his decision, and he bought into it. People make mistakes. So what? He has the right to play where he wants. If anything, blame the ownership for not putting the proper pieces around him. Check your history; it takes at least two legitimate all-stars on a team to win an NBA championship. I don't blame him for not wanted to waste much of his career for the promises of ownership- like KG – who incidentally won a title once he left his team.

  69. What's this post I read about Cleveland fans are over LeBron!!! NOT!! I for one just moved away from Cleveland (after being there for a year and a half) and they are some of the most nasty, ignorant, unwelcoming kind of folks.. and they are two faced, if he would have won, they would have been teasing the world that they kept the superstar, but he made a choice and now you want to cry like beee-ottchessss because of that choice.. Cleveland needs to grow the heck up..

  70. Who can blame Lebron? Ohio is the armpit of America, who wouldn't want to leave? Look at their fans, they are classless bandwagon jumpers. Maybe Cleveland should try and support the Cavs all the time, not just when they have a superstar. Then maybe you could hang onto that superstar when you get him. Otherwise, quit being a bunch of cry babies and stfu.

  71. CLEVELAND GET OVER IT!!!!! Leave the poor guy alone!

  72. its really sad to see in writing Americans berating Cleveland (an american city). isnt it bad enough that people across the world hate us americans,so what do some chose to do? say nasty things about fellow americans! passions do run deep but its only about a basketball player, not like he is something that important in the stream of life.

Only one team can win a championship a season so to berate another team or city just because their team is not number one is stupid. It only takes one misstep and lebron will be gone and then what? Will you still support him? I don't think so. Lebron cares for Miami just as a paycheck. He has already shown he has no loyalty. Your just a number Miami, a stepping stool, that's all nothing more.

    I am so sick and tired of all the whining and hate! Get over it and get a life!! Lebron doesn't owe any of you a darned thing. You're calling him selfish, while not realising you're the selfish ones. Look at the poor example of love you all are displaying. You're teaching anyone and everyone, who would look to you as an example, that this is how you act when things don't go the way you want them to. Just hate, any and everbody, you feel failed you in some way. If Lebron had stayed and brought a championship to Cleveland, and then at some point died and went to hell, would you all be okay with that?? You need to put that same energy into more important things like soul winning and making sure your in right-standing with the only one(God) who has a heaven and a hell to put you in…

Your sorry ass state deserves everything bad that happens to it.

    Lebron said he was going to bring a championship to Clevend and he renigged on his promise. Why did he not fight to get Bosh to suit up maroon and yellow? Why did he not fight go out and recruit for HIS team. Jordan didn't leave his team after years of not winning a ring neither did Kobe. Clevand should turn their back and say nothing about James his so called legacy will play out like the sreroid era in baseball records. As a fake!!!

    First of all, Lebron had a lot more on that team last year than anyone wants to admit. Mo Williams (former allstar), Antawn Jamison (former allstar), Shaq (former allstar and MVP), Z (former allstar), etc. JJ Hickson is becoming a stud in his absence this year to boot.

    How many allstars or former allstars are on the Lakers? Kobe, Gasol, Artest. That's it.

    How ironic is it that to "apologize" for a drawn out free agency, culminating in a drawn out TV special, he takes out a long form commercial that does nothing but play for sympathy. What a egotistical tool. I'm glad he tweets now; his tweets usually reinforce his ignorance and general lack of class.

    you people of Cleveland don't you know that Lebron has rights. The guy did break a contract nor he turned his back on you. He was a free agent and he chose to use it. What is wrong with you people. I did not know Lebron was a slave without rights. Al Sharpton was probably right to believe that some people of Cleveland especially the Cavalier's owner was acting like Lebron was his propriety. There is no going back. get ove it. People have rights.

    The fact that LeBron is a media whore has been well established for years. Backlash against it has been the norm throughout the entire country since it all began. It will continue with certain people from the Cleveland area now being willing participants. The people who need to "get over it" are the same idiots who seem to enjoy shoving LeBron and his minions down our throats every day.

That's why Barkley trying to diss Lebron because Lebron have a chance at a ring and Barkley didn't get his.

    Cleveland, why are your feelings hurting so bad? – oh is it that now you will become obsolete once again, as you were back pre- lebron James (the Cavs were never on national TV). Could it be that your pro sports teams have not won anything in 50 years, but Lebron got you closer than anyone since the fumble. Or is now that Dan Gilbert will see his franchise devalued now that LBJ is gone.

    Finally to all of you trash-talkers, LBJ is 6'9" 250 pounds – he would crush you – stop getting so personal.

    Get a life, cheer for you current team, hope the draft choices you got from the Decision put you back in the picture in 3 – 5 years and in the meantime watch the rings pile up in Miami – LOL!!

    I am so sick and tired of hearing Cleveland complain about Lebron leaving them. He gave 7 years of his career to this franchise. 7 years that he could have spent playing elsewhere. One player cannot do it all by himself and year after year the management of Cleveland continued to give Lebron mediocre talent to work with. Not one player, except Shaq last year, in the entire 7 years Lebron played with Cleveland was championship quality. Cleveland made countless mistakes at supporting perhaps the best player in the league. He gave his heart and soul to this franchise and they wasted it. I completely understand that the fans are upset. Lebron went to anther team in the same conference, blah blah blah. This is not a reason to be upset. There had been talk that Lebron was not staying with Cleveland for two years prior to him leaving. He had more weight on his shoulders than any other player in this league and it was time to leave. I wish that he would have left differently but a lot goes through a players mind when deciding to cut ties with a team. Lebron is not to blame for his departure though. Cleveland management is to blame. Quit crying and move on.

    To all of those who tell Cleveland fans to get over this – Get this through your dense brain. I will type slowly so you can understand. This video is done in response to Lebron's ad. Four months after The Decision, this Rise ad makes it obvious that Lebron is not over it. And Nike just wants you to like him enough to buy his shoes. Why else would Nike quickly try to remove any video evidence of a college player dunking on Lebron in a summer camp pickup game?

    Of course, Cleveland will react. Anyone with any balls will react to an egomaniac who continues to thow his fragile ego out there for suckers like you to reaffirm for him.

    Big Z knows how great the Cleveland fans are. You don't. Check out how he outclasses Lebron…

    I find it troubling how many of you draw grand conclusions about a large city and its fans based upon a video done by a few people that is not original, its only a reaction to a video that has national exposure and done only to serve an egomaniac and a greedy corporation who wants to take your money.

    Many of you are bashing the whole city and its fans, with no regard for the welfare of those involved. You think you are better than others? You think your sh_it don't stink?

    Go ahead, exhault yourself. You will be humbled.

    Lebron's actions will always be self-serving. And this nike ad is no different.

    Funny how many of you state that Cleveland is not over Lebron's departure. As Lebron continues to get booed at many, if not all, of the NBA cities, then you must draw the same conclusion for all of those cities.

    The fire began to simmer with the start of this season and the great support Cleveland has shown this year's Cavs. Lebron just fueled the fire with this commercial. The national disdain he will continue to endure will weigh heavily on his fragile ego.

    So, go ahead and praise his move. We'll see how this turns out.

    I can't believe the comment about Lebron having to carry so much weight for Cleveland.

    Cleveland has lost the most weight of any team in the history of the NBA, and Miami just gained it – Lebron's ego.

    Don't think that Lebron played for Cleveland. Lebron only plays for Lebron. Up until The Decision Cleveland and Lebron had one thing in common – they both loved Lebron. Now only one of them does. After a few seasons of failing in the post season, Miami will figure this out.

  112. Anonymous says:

    Cleveland knows that Lebron has every right to leave. Of course there are others that have left teams for greener pastures. The difference is this pompous, self-centered, media whore keeps throwing his departure back in our face because his poor ego has taken a beating.

    Of course we're going to react to a self-serving ad like this. Of course we are looking to express ourself when he returns to Cleveland after the way he handled his "decision". But it doesn't mean that we haven't moved on.

    Instead of drawing such grand conclusions about a significant population based on a youtube video of a few people, get on with your own life. Or maybe you can't, since you're too involved judging others.

    Get this straight… Cleveland doesn't hate Lebron. Sure we were a little hurt by the King's action but the national media is just playing a broken record and really doesn't understand Clevelanders.

    Cleveland has a rich sport tradition in football, basketball anb baseball with pro franchises in each (Not true for many cities). Go Browns.

Baing the favorite doesn't mena sh1t you have to play, which is what the quitter did not do, hence the side name (QUITTER). For the last 2-3 years Cleaveland was the favorite and now you come up with this stupidness saying he had no one around him. I bet you all agreed with the experst that they were the favorites, so shut the phuck up.

    Bobby, no one wants to call you or talk to you on the phone. If you like the lakers then why are you even commenting on this, lebron isnt a quitter. you are all just hating because he made a better decision for himself that will better his chances of getting a ring!

  120. If you want to leave then go but at least have the courtesy to tell your team. If you want to win championships go ahead and try no one should fault you for that. If you want to play with your friends hey that's cool do it. If you want to have a legacy and be known as the best player in the game then you tough it out and carry your team to a title MJ anyone? How long before everyone joins a so called super team? I think in the long run he hurt his chances of winning a title. Just my 2 cents.

  121. All I want is for the egomaniac to shut the hell up already. He's the one that keeps bringing it up and getting the fans riled back up again. Cavs fans hate him and everyone knows what he did and especially how he did it sucked. He strung the team along to the deadline and then he publicly embarrassed his team, team mates, and pretty much the whole state – not just Cleveland. He just can't stand that he's not worshipped like he used to be. However, I'm sure the good people of Miami are more than happy to genuflect and adore him, so I have no doubt he'll get over it soon enough.
