Maurice Jones Drew’s Taunting Of Cleveland Was Coldblooded, Awesome

LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat…well, it was rough for Cleveland fans. Even with the NBA lying dormant for the time being, some would still probably rather not think too much about LeBron’s departure and what it meant for the state of pro sports in Cleveland. Alas, after scoring a touchdown today against the Browns, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew was all too happy to offer the home crowd a reminder of their onetime King:

Jones-Drew, of course, isn’t the first player to mimic LeBron’s powder toss. Santonio Holmes did it after his Super-Bowl-clinching catch in 2009. And just last night – with LeBron in attendance, no less – USC players did it during their upset of Oregon. But Jones-Drew is the first opposing player we’ve seen actually do it in front of a Cleveland crowd (besides LeBron himself last year with the Heat). Two powder tosses in two days – imagine how many LeBron references there’d be if his league actually existed right now.

    Robert Woods did the same celebration on the USC sideline when he scored on Oregon since LeBron James was at the game.

    yeah, sportsgrid, only report on teams who win, regardless of if anything is relevant/entertaining.  if the team lost than it makes whatever happened to that team irrelevant according to gk123.  Oh well, I guess I should cut him slack, cleveland is absolutely the worst football team in the league to watch so I’m sure this season has been miserable.  oh wait, all cleveland fans have blinders on at all times
