When Cleveland visited Miami back in December, LeBron James chose to sit out. Heat fans chanted "LeBron is tired" as Miami cruised to a 99-84 victory. Last night LeBron played, but his Cavs didn't fair any better--the Heat won big again, 122-101. The Miami crowd came up with a new dig for their former star:

LeBron's Cavaliers failed to win in his former stomping grounds this season (although they could in the playoffs), and they didn't get a W there last year either. James is now 0-4 in Miami since taking his talents away from South Beach (Cleveland has lost 11 straight there overall). More importantly for the Cavs, their lead over Toronto for the No. 1 seed in the East is down to just 1.5 games.
Yes, I know a Heat loss yesterday would've been better for the Celtics, but it's just so easy to root against LeBron...
