CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - LeBron James has let us know what he thought of the 0-16 Cleveland Browns parade, needless to say he was not a fan.
James told The Athletic, "(Expletive) yeah I'd be.But how are you going to be at the fans? It's (expletive) up. I understand that as a player, but you've got to try and fix that (expletive). It could be worse. How 'bout they just boycott a season until y'all win two games in a row?"
James went about as far as he could without criticizing the fans.
He gets it. He has made statements this year about the Browns not taking DeShaun Watson in the 2017 draft.
He knows they have reached a comically absurd level of bad, but as a competitor he can see how Browns players would bristle at a parade mocking them.
James got put in a tough spot and handled it well.
Better than some Browns players have handled it, even a former Browns player.
Johnny Manziel briefly posted on Instagram 0-16szn, which many surmise to mean "0-16 season." Manziel later took it down.
