All it took was one phone call from the King to change the Cleveland Cavaliers way of thinking. Ever since Lebron announced last week that he was returning to the Cavs, the team has been in constant talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves regarding trading for Kevin Love. The deal has been pretty stagnant due to the fact the Cavs said they were unwilling to trade number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins. Apparently as of last night that has changed and it is all thanks to Bron himself. Hit the jump.

The bandwagon of the Cleveland Cavaliers just got alot heavier after Lebron decided to take his talents back to Ohio. Similar to what happened with the Miami Heat when he decided to go there, fans have a tendency to just switch sides and claim a team at the drop of a hat. In 2010, suddenly the Heat had the most fans in the NBA after barely anyone outside of Florida caring about the team before. Someone decided to get creative and make this video of a heat fan instantly becoming a Cavs fan after the announcement. This is funny but this is exactly what is happening all over the country since Friday. Hit the jump.
