Some of you say "good for him," while others are disgusted that LeBron James won an NBA championship.

It's a tale of two cities here in Northeast Ohio and Channel 3's Sara Shookman talked to people on both sides of the fence.

There's a fine line between love and hate. And today it might lay somewhere along I-77.

WTAM's Mike Trivisonno said "He never liked Cleveland. I tried to tell you people that. He's not from Cleveland. He's from Akron."

LeBron James is now an NBA champion and he's all the talk on the Mike Trivisonno show and all across Northeast Ohio.

"Where else would we be without him? Where else would we be? I think we're all still here....I'm just pretending it didn't happen."

While denial works for some, Mayor Don Plusquellic had only well wishes to send.

"He's the best basketball player in the world. He was the most valuable player...and he got a ring. I am happy for him. I wish him well," Plusquellic said.

Here in Akron, basketball fans are happy for the hometown hero.

The guys who play on King James Court at Perkins Park had faith he'd make it happen.

But for everyone whose feelings are somewhere in between -- Maybe Gator Galvin said it best when hesaid "I'm happy for him. Now everybody gets to stop talking about LeBron."
