LeBron Fan Wears Burnt Jersey to Game (Video)
Remember when LeBron James took his talents to South Beach back in 2010, and Cleveland Cavaliers fans took to the streets to burn his jersey?
Well, a fan was spotted wearing a burnt LeBron James jersey and carrying a LeBron James sign in Denver on Wednesday night.

Of course, people who pay attention to jerseys might have noticed something was a little off. LeBron left Cleveland following the 2009-10 NBA season, when the Cavs were still wearing these jerseys:
Those gold jerseys with maroon “Cavs” on the front—currently listed as the official home alts—weren’t introduced until 2012. So either this LeBron fan bought a LeBron Cavs home alt jersey and set it on fire four years after The Decision, or he’s a plant.
I’m going with option B. The guy was obviously a plant by the Nuggets game ops crew. Why else would they put him on the Pepsi Center video board?
It’s actually a pretty good gag. However, if they really want to sell it they should get the jersey right. You can get old LeBron jerseys for $40 bucks on eBay. I checked.
