I reject the premise.
If anything the Cleveland Cavs fans should stop wearing their emotions on their collective sleeves when it comes to LeBron. He is a free agent and listening to offers from everyone that has a pitch. He isn't holding anyone hostage and he isn't forcing anyone to put on their best dress and make-up. If you want him, that's the minimum that you have to do to get him. But don't get pissed at LeBron if another woman wins his favor. That's life. Either grow up and learn to compete in the market and deal with rejection, or don't participate at all.
