Former Browns owner Art Modell doesn’t think he’s off the hook yet.
“Do I think LeBron James as he leaves Cleveland will become the most
hated man in Cleveland, more hated than Art Modell?” Modell told the News-Herald, showing a love of the third person much like Mr. James. “Nonsense. Nonsense. I don’t think there’s any
basis for it.”
James was a free agent; Modell moved an entire team out of town. At least he didn’t hold a one hour special on ESPN to rub it in, though.
“Too much is being made of it,” Modell said. “He’s going on network television at 9
tonight to announce what he’s going to do. Too many dramatics. I resent
the whole thing being turned into a three-ring circus.”
Still, Modell had one idea to decide the most hated man, once and for all.
“Maybe we can each take 10 foul shots,” Modell said. “Whoever comes in second would be
the most hated. I’m being sarcastic.”
