So LeBron James Wore a Yankees Hat to an Indians Game—What's the Big Deal?

Kevin GreenContributor IJanuary 4, 2009

There was a little bit of controversy awhile ago about LeBron James wearing a New York Yankees hat to a Cleveland baseball game.

Ok, "wow" is one of the best words to describe this issue. I mean, this is a free country! I do understand that most people would think that LeBron would wear an Indians' hat.

But I mean, come on, he was out with some of his friends just having fun. This is kind of out there, but if an Iraqi came to America, he could believe in his religion. That is because this is a free country. Same with baseball.
