LeBron James is one of the rare few people who could get away with wearing one of those "The Man, The Myth, The Legend" shirts and have it be totally accurate. When it comes to the basketball court, few have done it better.
That's probably why this is happening.

If LeBron James were to sign with the Sixers he’d instantly be in the pantheon of worldwide Philly celebrities along with Will Smith, Princess Grace and the cigarette-smoking crab.— Dan McQuade (@dhm) February 26, 2018
But Cleveland wasn't going to let that disrespect stand. Admit it, putting up pro-Philly billboards in Cleveland was ... um... "bold." So Cleveland fired back by sending Philly the finger - in crown form.
Twitter wasn't about to stay out of the fray.
If them Lebron to philly billboards aren’t burned down yet Cleveland’s soft they wouldn’t have lasted a day in Philly— Miike Reilly (@Reillsalinio) March 2, 2018
Fool please. You obviously don't know nothing about the Land. Philly who?— Shawneen Hicks (@GEMof72) March 2, 2018
See that's something we don't do burn down other people's property. But you are the lug heads that had a riot destroying property after the Super Bowl real classy— Sabrina🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸 (@OhioPpl4Trump) March 2, 2018
Gotta give Cleveland some respect, their response to the billboards is solid— Mike Cilly (@Mcil9518) March 1, 2018

Well... not this guy.
Is this a fight to see who has the stupidest fan base?— ❄️ The King Stejskal ❄️ (@KingStejskal) March 2, 2018
But the rest of us are all over here on our Cardi B. like:
We'll let you know if Philly fires back. Obviously. There's no way we're staying away from this drama.
