07:11 AM ET 04.16 | here's been lots of cheering at The Q this season, but LeBron James is still irritated by a particular boo session. Before Wednesday's regular season finale against the Philadelphia 76ers, James took the microphone to thank the fans for their support. It was quite a season indeed as the Cavs set franchise records by selling out 38 of 41 games and averaging 20,512, just a few dozen below capacity. James told the crowd that it was a season of "wins and smiles." But with his teammates around him, he had one request. "We're all a family and sometimes families have disagreements," James said. "If we win, 99-20, don't boo us because you don't get a free chalupa." James was referring to the occasions this season when the fans got on the Cavs in blowouts when they came up just short of the requisite 100 points to trigger the prize. The Cavs have dribbled out the final possession with the century mark in reach 10 times at home this season. One particular game in November against the Bucks, when James held the ball at the end and got booed, got under his skin and he expressed some disappointment with fans a few days later -- unable to get it off his mind. "We want to bring you all a championship," James said Wednesday. "Not tacos."
