As we could have anticipated, there are plenty of folks who are devastated by LeBron James‘ decision to take his talents to the Miami Heat. Cleveland Cavs fans are certainly heartbroken. Dan Gilbert feels betrayed. But what about Boston Celtics fans? Apparently, some of them took the decision pretty hard as well.
A 30-year-old man from Flint, Mich. was reportedly stopped by police early Sunday morning after they witnessed his vehicle drift over the center line. When police asked if he had been drinking, he admitted that he had been and provided a classic excuse as to why. According to the officers, the man said LeBron’s decision to play for the Miami Heat instead of the Boston Celtics was too much for him. I could be wrong here, but I’m pretty sure the Celtics were in no way a part of the King James sweepstakes.
Either this drunk came up with one of the worst excuses for banged-up driving in the history of DUI stops, or he’s completely delusional. Let’s say that really was the reason he was drinking. He really thought there was a chance LeBron went to Boston and was crushed when he didn’t? Oh yeah, and he still wasn’t over it three days later? Unless he was just finding out about the news on Saturday night, he must have been on one hell of a bender. Let’s hope losing his license for a while helps him get over his dreams being shattered.
