Clevelanders Hoping for Revenge on LeBron James With ‘Cavs for Mavs’ Campaign

Cavaliers fans' worst nightmare is just four games from coming true.

After being spurned by LeBron James' "Decision," James and the Miami Heat have steamrolled through the playoffs to a bid in the NBA Finals, where they are strong favorites against the Dallas Mavericks.

That title that LeBron claimed he would bring to Northeast Ohio is just inches away from instead landing in South Beach.

Accordingly, many in Cleveland have jumped on the Mavs bandwagon, with the "Cavs for Mavs" movement gaining momentum.

George Vlosich, a graphic artist from the area, created a t-shirt design substituting the "C" in "Cavs" with an "M," and it has been "blowing up," according to ESPN.

"Clevelanders have kind of pulled together to root against him. That's kind of a neat thing," Vlosich said. "We're rooting as hard against them as we would for the Cavs."

Cavs for Mavs has also accrued a following on Twitter, gaining 500 followers in its first hour of existence.
