Cheers in Miami, Jeers in Cleveland
MIAMI (AP) -- In Cleveland, they set LeBron James jerseys on fire. In South Florida, fans spilled into streets, thrusting their arms high with joy.

James' decision to join the Miami Heat was received with just about every emotion imaginable, especially in Cleveland, where a native son of Ohio won two MVP trophies and was revered like almost no other athlete in the city's long history.
