Plenty of Cleveland Cavaliers fans began kicking themselves about a week ago when they realized burning their old LeBron James jerseys may come back to haunt them. NBA jerseys aren’t cheap, and fans could have saved themselves some money by just throwing their LeBron jerseys in a box and sticking the box in the attic.
Kate Upton realizes this. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model noted on Friday that the Cavs stand to make a whole bunch of money thanks to fans being overly emotional.
cavaliers are going to make so much money..all the fans are going to have to buy a Lebron jersey again since they burned the originals ones

Of course, LeBron is likely going to wear a different number with the Cavs this time around. Those old 23 jerseys would be considered throwback, as it initially looked like James was going to wear No. 6 and now there is speculation that he will be wearing No. 32, which he wore in high school.
In other words, the Cavs were going to make a bunch of money anyway. But when Kate talks, we listen. Why? See below:
