PEORIA, Ill. (AP)—Even the Peoria Chiefs are poking fun at LeBron James.
The Chicago Cubs’ Class A affiliate in Illinois held a LeBron James NBA Championship Replica Ring Giveaway at Thursday night’s game. The replica rings, like a Miami Heat championship, don’t exist.
The Peoria Star Journal reports that fans who came to Thursday’s Chiefs game were greeted with an empty table.
Before the event, the Chiefs had also joked that they hoped to skip the fourth inning of Thursday’s game against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to “honor” James. James was criticized for his poor performance in the fourth quarter of games during the NBA finals against Dallas.
The Chiefs showed up for the fourth inning, but still lost their game 2-0.
To me this is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of, go’s to show that some teams or some players are classless. Everyone is jelly of the Heat because they did the impossible and signed the big three and made it to the NBA finals. So what if we didn’t win, we will eventually. And then what? I’m just tired of all the bullshit that everyone that ain’t from South Florida is saying. To all the haters, wait and see homies cause there’s something special going on down here. We will win one or two. That’s fo sho!!
