08:14 AM ET 12.01 | A certain former Indians slugger with a checkered fan relationship in Cleveland has a wish for Thursday night. From one Cleveland villain to another, Albert Belle hopes LeBron James and Cavaliers fans can play nice Thursday at the Q. "My advice to LeBron is to take the high road and act professional," said Belle. "I hope the fans do the same. I don't want them to embarrass themselves on TV. I'd like to see everybody hug and kiss before the game and then the fans can boo the heck out of LeBron during the game."

It's unfortunate that Cavs fans are so irrational. LeBron owes the city nothing. The Cavs tried to surround LeBron with talent to help bring a title home, and it wasn't working, so he went to a place where he thought he'd have a better chance of winning. I think we'd all have done the same thing. I thought Boston fans were ridiculous, but that whole thing back in June really put Cavs fans in the same neighborhood.

haha that is so true... you can hear his brain fart.. bc he is so gassy and stupid

Here is what's going to happen....

Security will be tight, the fans will boo and hiss and scream and basically show their **** towards him....

He will do nothing, say nothing and in the end, put up about 30+ on them and Miami wins the game...a tight game, but Miami wins.

Getting pissed because the guy you invested your teams future in slinks out of town after stabbing the owners and the fans in the back isn't exactly irrational.

But screaming like silly girls at the top of your lungs how your new big 3 is going to change the basketball world and own the next 7 titles before the new guys ever even play a game... now that's irrational... not to mention incredibly stupid.

And just how were Boston fans ridiculous? Are you referring to their foolish hopes that the too old to compete C's would make it to the finals... Oh wait. That happened didn't it?

So why were they ridiculous?

You can't go home again, Bro.

We didn't hate him, he hated us and all fans for that matter. We loved the guy but he was an emotional rollercoaster. What's not to love about a guy who throws a baseball into the stands because a drunk guy insulted him by calling him Joey and offering to buy him a drink?

Looking back it was total roid rage but at the time we just thought he had a temper and hated the media.
