OK, at this point this is just getting mean

At what point is something like this just considered piling on? Has ripping LeBron James jumped the shark? Not if you’re the Peoria Chiefs, who held their gala LeBron James Championship Ring Replica Night on Monday. The team made good on its promise to hand out replica Miami Heat 2011 NBA championship rings, which of course means that they gave out nothing at all. But that didn’t stop them from erecting this display in the concourse (and this one … ha), or  one fan from holding his hand out to the TV camera to show off a naked finger where the ring would be.

    you know I hope it never ends! I know the folks here heat don’t like to see their team and hero mocked but I and everybody outside of south beach love it. he and his buddies are the ones who started it with all their talk and hype before the season and when they couldn’t back it up we get all the excuses and their time will come talk. hey maybe they will win someday but until then I will love every losing minute.the heat did not lose Dallas beat them! get over it already!stop force feeding their greatness down our throats and let them I don’t know actually win it all before you anoint them the greatest ever.

    When leb has a ring, the hate may lessen. Until then, it grows.
