Dog of a Decision: LeBron Wears Manziel Browns Jersey, Loses to Nets
Why did you do it, LeBron?
Why in the name of all that is Donald Sterling did you fly in to Game 3 of the second-round series against the Nets wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey?
Never mind that it's Johnny Manziel's new clobber, and that Mr Football has just joined your marketing firm whatsit -- it's still the Browns. You know, the Pinto of professional teams? The Rob Ford of sporting franchises? Why soil the fabric of an unbeaten playoff run to date by wearing the threads of a dud? Why tempt Fate?
After a subsequent 104-90 drubbing in Brooklyn, these are the questions Erik Spoelstra's asking. No doubt the Miami Heat fans, too. And Pat Riley -- famous for using couture to inspire victory -- must be setting fire to his pomade follicles.
Not all hope is lost, however. The insipid Browns influence can be be expunged before the Heat's three-peat hopes have gone to the dogs.
Burn the jersey. Burn it to ashes and vow never ever to wear it again.
LeBron should know how to do that.
