Here's what Cavs fans said about LeBron -- in 2010

  • LeBron returns to Cleveland and fans are ready to forgive
  • However, the Internet never forgets
  • Warning: This might get very awkward for Cavs fans
Here's what Cavs fans said about LeBron -- in 2010

And so, for the first time in anybody's memory, someone took a good, long look at Miami, thought hard and decided to live in Cleveland instead.

That this someone is also the greatest basketball player on the planet and America's most scrutinized athlete who only four years earlier had left Cleveland in a wake of burning jerseys and spiteful Comic Sans public condemnations makes this even more surprising.

Yes, LeBron James -- the "Kid from Akron, Ohio" as he is so eager to keep reminding us -- is going home -- announcing Friday on that he will return to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team which drafted him out of high school in 2003 and with whom he won two NBA MVP awards.

Understandably this has made those once jersey-burning Cavs fans very happy.

But while they're all ready to snap up season tickets and forgive, the Internet never forgets.

Here's what many of those same Cavs fans were saying four years ago this month, when James left his home state to sign with the Miami Heat.

Warning: This might get very awkward and/or hypocritical.

But then this happened. So we cool now?
