VIDEO: Cleveland Fans React To LeBron's Decision To Leave

Since LeBron James told the world on Thursday night that he's leaving Cleveland to join Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade with the Miami Heat, you've hard from writers, journalists, players, pundits ... and of course Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.

But what about the fans?

The Cleveland Plain Dealer tracked down some of these unfortunate folks at a Cleveland watering hole to watch the LeBron announcement on ESPN. The video, shot by photographer Lynn Ischay at the Winking Lizard Tavern in the Lakewood neighborhood of Cleveland, shows fans as they get the news delivered to them at the bar. Seemingly genuine shock ensues.
