Found September 21, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
Recently, the fine folks over the Cleveland Cavaliers official website decided to create a list of “all-time Cavaliers by numbers one through 50″ and their original choice for the #23 spot was pretty interesting. Originally, the list had current Utah Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin listed as the greatest Cavalier to wear the number despite LeBron James holding all the major Cavaliers scoring records. Check out the below caption that was originally listed under Corbin’s photo: So many great Cavaliers have worn No. 23, but we went with current Jazz coach, Tyrone Corbin. The digit, made famous by MJ, was also worn by Chris Dudley, Gary Freeman, Rowland Garrett, Mike Bratz, Bruce Flowers, Tyrone Corbin, John Morton, Rod Higgins, Carl Thomas, Derek Anderson and LeBron James. As you might figure, the Interwebs noted this oversight and the list had to be edited to include LeBron’s photo in Corbin’s place along with this caption: “Without question, LeBron’s photo belongs here!” the website wrote underneath the photo. “The number 23 was also worn by Chris Dudley, Gary Freeman, Rowland Garrett, Mike Bratz, Bruce Flowers, Tyrone Corbin (we still have great love for you, Tyrone!), John Morton, Rod Higgins, Carl Thomas and Derek Anderson.” *** Cavaliers website places Tyrone Corbin as best #23 in team history [Real GM] LeBron James image courtesy of Getty Images

Cavaliers Call Someone Other Than LeBron James the Greatest No. 23 in Team History (child please!)

I understand that the Cleveland Cavaliers and their fans are mad at LeBron James. LBJ was supposed to be the One; a homegrown talent that was going to take the home team to the top. But than he 'decided' to take his considerable talents to South Beach. If I was a Cavs fan or owner of the team I'd still be mad even though its been a few years. However, when you let...

Louisville Zoo’s newest jaguar is named “LeBron James”
