Cleveland has always had a painful history with its professional sports teams. The news heard around the world last Friday of LeBron James going back to Cleveland left many in shock while others cheered and respected The King's decision.
For Cleveland, it's been a gruesome four years in basketball after James decided to take his talents to South Beach. After James decided to leave, fans in Cleveland burnt his jersey and merchandise in anger and turned against their beloved hometown hero, while Miami Heat fans quickly rushed to their nearest sports retail stores to pick up James' new No. 6 jersey.
But all that has changed now that James is going back home. The Cleveland fans that still had his No. 23 jersey took to the streets in excitement with their throwback tanks. James changed his jersey number when he went to the Heat, so it is unclear for now if he'll be rocking the No. 6 jersey with the Cavs. The rumor around the league is that he may in fact change his jersey number once again and start wearing No. 32, a number James wore in his high school days.
With all the buzz surrounding the Cleveland area nowadays, we take a look back at the nine best sports jerseys that every Clevelander should own.
