When the fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers were spurned by the most iconic player in the NBA, they didn't take it too well.

It didn't matter that Cleveland basketball had seen its greatest moments thanks to LeBron James. It didn't matter that it was well within LeBron's right to change teams.

In large part, the reaction was bitter, petty jealousy.

When Steve Williams was spurned by the most iconic player in golf, he didn't take it too well, either.

It didn't matter that he owed his entire career, along with millions of dollars, to Tiger Woods. It didn't matter that it was well within Tiger's right to change Caddies.

Williams reacted with bitter, petty jealousy.

But the similarities don't end there. Actually, it gets kind of funny.

When the Dallas Mavericks went up against LeBron James' team in the NBA Finals, many Cleveland fans got behind them. When the Mavericks won the title, somehow the Cleveland Cavalier fans seemed to think that they won the title. In embarassing fashion, they celebrated in the streets as if they had.

Steve Williams took a new job carrying clubs for Adam Scott.

When Scott won a tournament, somehow Williams seemed to think that he had won it. In embarrassing fashion, he took to the cameras, acting as if he had hit the ball into the hole.

Strangely, maybe the similarities help support the behavior of the fans and of Stevie Williams.

Most of us haven't been spurned by one of the most famous athletes in the world. We don't know how we would act.

If the behavior of Steve Williams is any indication, it wouldn't be pretty.
