As news broke that LeBron James is returning to the Cavaliers after opting out of his contract with the Heat, Miami fans vowed to go back to ignoring the team, just like they have during most of its existence.
“We didn’t care about the Heat for the four-year period between our first championship and the signing of LeBron, and we sure as hell won’t care now,” said George Varela of Pompano Beach, who claims to have been a die-hard fan during the four years James was in Miami. “That is unless they sign another superstar sometime soon”
Added Varela: “Is that going to happen? I don’t know much about sports.”
