Cleveland radio host to name baby after Dirk

OK, Cleveland, it's over now. The LeBron James saga finally has a bit of closure. The season of vengeance and hate has ended, and now we can all pick up the pieces and take a step forward.

I understand you're psyched about LeBron's failure and all. If I were in your circumstance, maybe I'd respond the same way. But you burned the jerseys, booed him to death, cheered wildly when the Mavs beat the Heat and had a day honoring Dallas. I think that's enough.

But now? Now people are naming their unborn children after Dirk Nowitzki. Via the NY Daily News:
A pregnant Cleveland radio host is getting the ultimate revenge on LeBron James for leaving the Cavaliers: she'll name her son after a star player on the team that beat the Miami Heat for the NBA championship.

Cherise Navidad, the host of a Saturday night show on Cleveland's Q104, says she's never gotten over James' televised announcement last July that he was going to leave his hometown to play for Miami.

"That's such a cruel thing to do," she said of James' announcement at the tail end of the much-hyped hour-long special on ESPN to announce his decision.

So, a year later, she's going to name her son after Dirk Nowitzki, the MVP of the Dallas Mavericks, who beat James and the Heat.

Why not just go all the way with this? Why not "Dallas" or "Maverick?" (Oh wait, not Maverick -- that's the reason LeBron's in Miami.) Or how about "Hatelebron?" Or "Lebronsucks?" I feel like Jerry in the "Seven" episode. What about, Mickey?

She does make a good point though for all the people that are saying this is ridiculous. Navidad agrees. But she'll always have a fun story about how they got the name of their second child. She'll have to explain she made a silly promise on Twitter -- which obviously is a binding contract -- but it all happened because Dirk's Mavericks knocked LeBron and his evil Heat teammates off. As a Clevelander I'm sure that's something they will take great pride in.

Navidad said it's actually her husband's turn to name the child -- she named the first -- but said she promises the baby's name will include Dirk somewhere, even if it's a middle name.

Lebronsucks Dirk Navidad. Got a nice ring to it.

For the millionth time. Cleveland fans are not mad at Lebron for leaving. IT WAS THE WAY HE LEFT.

Your grammar is absolutely despicable. Next time you want to get your point across, try running your crap through spell check. It helps.

LE who?

  Enough, this guy clearly isnt the best player of all time, or the best player in the NBA, and he isnt even the best player on his team. When the dust settles over the next few years, he will have to live with himself and the idiotic way he went about making his decisions. Until then the only team he's the best on is your Fantasy Basketball team. Hero to Zero in 82 games...

That's right Royce because we all burnt his jersey, we all booed him, we all cheered wildly when he lost, and we are all naming our children after Dirk Nowitzki.  Nice that you pick things that a few people are doing, dip your paintbrush in it, and then apply it to the entire city.

pathetic and moron. i curious how she going to explain to the child when he/she got older where the name came from? is she going to teach the kid to hate Labron too, how can someone hate another human that they never talk to or being around with? what so wrong for him to leave his hometown to better his career and his life? i am sure many of us had left where we from to advance our life and career.  For the past year everyone blame labron for leaving Cleveland but what about the team owner? what had he done t help the team and help Lebron when Bosh, Wade, Amire are available? in the 7years that Lebron what there, he had turn the team around to a playoff team and a contender which force all of us fan to tune to watch.  he had put cleveland back on the map,
