LOS ANGELES - The city of Cleveland has become somewhat of a running punchline following LeBron James departure for Miami. Just like James has faced criticism for his decision to leave the Cavaliers, plenty of jokes have been made about the city itself.
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is the latest to knock Cleveland.
During an interview Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel asked Wade if he would have gone to Cleveland to join LeBron. Wade laughed, and said, “No. I wasn’t going to Cleveland.”
His response drew laughter from Kimmel and the crowd.
Kimmel’s jokes were the latest on Cleveland, as the city took some shots during the ESPYs. Host Seth Meyers cracked that Cavs fans should have known James was leaving because, after all, “Leave” is in the city’s name.
As Wade was joking around on Kimmel, rapper Flo Rida was introducing a new song claiming that the Heat have already won the NBA finals.
