The tale of a failed Cleveland court-stormer in three acts

From #YOLO to #salty in five tweets.

Cavs fans in Cleveland love to storm the court. It's the darnedest thing. It's happened before when LeBron James and the Heat were visiting. It happened twice (that we know of) this season, with Kyrie Irving as the apparent target both times.

Well, the Heat were in town Tuesday night, and a LeBron visit is primetime for Cleveland court-stormin', especially because he gave a previous court-stormer some attention. It didn't take long:

ACT I

Scotty's pre-storm crowd-sourced motivation publicity campaign began early:

The tweet caught a wave, and it became evident rather quickly that 1,000 RTs wouldn't be a problem:

We at SB Nation watched along:

ACT II

At around 8:32 PM ET, Scotty's tweet hit the breaking point:

...and we waited. And we waited. And then...

ACT III

Awwwwww.

Surely for the best.
