Cavs for Mavs: Twisted tale of loyalty

The guy’s moniker is Cleveland Todd. He’s obsessed with sports. And he hates LeBron James.

Really hates him. Hates him as a player. Hates him as a personality. He hates both the decision (James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers last summer for the Miami Heat) and “The Decision” (James’ self-promoting ESPN special to announce the taking of “my talents to South Beach”).

As the NBA playoffs have churned this spring, Todd has rooted passionately against the Heat, only to see LeBron and company plow through the competition. It’s been depressing, he said.

On Tuesday afternoon, just hours before the start of the NBA Finals and with the Dallas Mavericks as the only hope remaining, Cleveland Todd decided to do something.

He launched a simple twitter account: @CavsForMavs.

He thought it’d be funny. He thought he’d use it as an outlet to make some harsh comments. He thought maybe his friends would see it.

Within hours he had 1,000 followers. A fan named Brett Nehls designed a logo. Another guy came up with a slogan: “Defeat. Pure. Evil.”
