Here is Cleveland’s response to Nike’s clever, “Rise,” commercial.
Check below for Lebron’s reaction.
LOL, you Cleveland dudes need to LET. IT. GO.
lol cleveland get so emotional…just let it go mein, it aint that deep…
^^^ co-sign the 2 above ^^^ Whether we want to admit it or not- SPORTS IS A BUSINESS. Lebron owes Cleveland nothing & vice versa. I hope that man shits on them when the Heat visits Cleveland.
My commercial response would go; “If I didnt play basketball how many of yall would clutch your purse when I walked by”, “How many of yall would mind if I moved into your neighborhood or dated your daughter”?
Oh thats right Im just another nigger with a jump shot.
note to cleveland…GET OVER IT! dayum! too emotional seriously. They need to hand out some pamprin to the city at each game. uggh.
Now I c y Lebron left cleveland, its a bunch of fools living out there, I been out there b4 and its absolutely NOTHING to do. He’s on earth to take care his family not CLEVELAND…………….
Hey, Lebron bought the whole situation back up with his Rise commercial, so not expecting Cleveland fans not to have some sort of response is sort of naive and arrogant. It’s funny because if the star player of you guys favorite team left and did it the way Lebron did Cleveland, you feel a type of way too.
correction *expecting Cleveland fans not…
@SAvannahCitlinPimp I’m from Miami if Dwade decided to leave our owner won’t write a letter bashing him and we won’t burn his jersey its not that serious its sports, I always thought it was a game that serves as entertainment! NOt a game that insults someone character.
the main reason why everyone is pissed because lebron is from ohio and the way he left
Society pays attention to skill. No skill, no attention, no money and thats how it goes across the board. Im sorry you feel that Lebron is just another “nigger with a jump shot” and if he wasn’t playing basketball “society” would think he was such a terrible person as you described.
LMFAOOOOOO GET OVER IT ALREADY, DAMN!!!!!!!!!
you all a bunch of Lebron dick riders he doesn’t even know you guys or care about shit, he’s about himself and thats it just like everyone else so hope off. Lebron can’t shine Kobe shoes and try and argue that point.
DAMN! GET OVER THAT SHIT!
did Lebron James really need to make a two minute whiney commercial that seemed more directed towards Cleavland than to just all nba fans in General. And who the fuck makes a two minute commercial anyways? Although I also say YES CLEAVLAND YOU NEED TO LET IT GO… they had a right to respond to such a stupid commercial.
Lebron single handedly carried the cavs on his back to the playoffs year after year, single handedly got them a conference championship & took them to the finals, single handedly kept the economy in tact, sold out season tickets, sold a crazy amount of cav jerseys/paraphernalia & put Cleveland on the map for 7 years straight. All that said, Cleveland never helped him. They wanted him 2 win them a ring with no help. All the money he’s made for that city/team for 7 years & the best they could do 2 help him was bring shaq’s old ass to the team. Bottom line is that lebron did waaayyyy more for Cleveland than Cleveland did for him. They are lucky he stayed as long as he did. Jordan had pippin, Shaq had Kobe, magic had Kareem, melon had Stockton….etc. If u wanted him 2 stay why didn’t u just help him out half as much as he helped y’all. I’m no a lebron fan but I’m glad he left that ungrateful city.
Cleveland is lame yo. I woulda left too. Lebron put Cleveland back on the map BY HIMSELF. He don’t owe them nothing else after that. He fulfilled his contractual obligations and bounced.
Now these fools want to attach his work ethic and talk about him throwing playoff games??? These niggas musta forgot that game against Detroit when dude dropped 25 in a row in the 4th.
That’s the problem with Cleveland. Lebron SPOILED them. They don’t deserve shit no more. They aint going win a championship for the next 20 years or more.
All u fools are jokes, dis cat name lebum leaves his roots man…i know he aint directly from Cleveland, but he from the Cleveland town, which includes A-city and he gets up and leaves to big and better things. A great person is shown through making something out of nothing. Why you hattin on a city which you fools think has nothing thats like hatin on someone who born n raised in the streets…haters….but lebron took his gay ass to a gay ass city full of nothing but money and drugs….cleveland got family and lebron got shit. And a lot of you cats talk are all talk just like lebron he said he would win us a championship and he did nothing…..this is not about lebron owing cleveland anything it about someone being true to his word its called respect and a true baller lets his game speak and lebrons game speaks for how selfish he is. New York would have been a better choice people keep it real up there. lebron just moves closer south because the only where he is goin in the end is south…hell
You guys are ridiculous.. If anyone watched More Than A Game, they would know the connection the entire OHIO had with LeBron. He made so many promises, he was born & raised there. The basketball fans of Ohio have been supporting him since he was 13 YEARS OLD!
Understand that if you make such deep promises to a whole city and give up in the playoffs, you’re going to get backlash. Plus, this whole situation was over until LeBron being the attention whore that he is decided to make that commercial. Everyone was starting to be like “ahh he did what he had to do”, but why add insult to injury with the commercial?
lebron can’t say nothing back to the quote at the end and thats the main reason they are mad plain and simple if he hadn’t of said that then this whole situation would of been different
Yeah Lebron did do alot for cleveland, but in the end it was just a joke. the playoffs to the stupid ass commerical he made. Oh he is so great! thats why he moved to miami to cheat on his wife!! yeah what a good guy!! so all u lebron lovers if thats what u think is a great guy then u too suck as humans
did anyone hear the quote at the end of this video? this is why the people of cleveland are angry. because i promised us he would bring a championship, and he failed to fulfill that. also, he could have been like every other player on free agency who goes to another team, and just went. but an hour long tv special ? unneccessary. and more than a game, a 2008 movie about lebron james and how dedicated he was to akron, cleveland and the state of ohio. so much for that. and now a commercial. its outrageous really.
we need to stop giving him this attention! thats all he wants.
varejao, mo williams, and gibson all day!
^^^GMAFB! How many people have kept the promises they made when they were 18-19??? Its not like dude said that with ill intentions. Can anyone say that Lebron didn’t want to bring a championship to Cleveland??? NO. Of COURSE he wanted that shit….but sometimes SHIT JUST DON’T WORK OUT.
Lebron put in 7 highlight filled years in Cleveland and people want to nitpick about one or two playoff games. GTFOH!! How about the entire playoffs of 2007 when he CARRIED the team to the finals?? Aint nobody in Cleveland talking about that huh??
At the end of the day, Lebron has to look out for #1.
Cleveland? fan and I LOVE this commercial.. i really think lebron should disappear in miami. he’s messing things up down there..
