Perhaps the greatest minor-league baseball giveaway I've seen

So Lebron didn't win an NBA Championship. Guess what the Peoria Chiefs are giving away to their lucky, lucky fans?

The Peoria Chiefs have added a LeBron James 2011 NBA Championship Replica Ring Giveaway to all fans on Thursday June 16..The replica ring, which like LeBron's is non-existent, will be handed out to all fans through the gates prior to the 7:00 p.m. game against Wisconsin.

I got this from Deadspin, which has to be delighting over Lebron becoming a national punchline. Has any other athlete received this much crap for losing the NBA Finals? Normally, I would jump into the "LEAVE LEBRON ALONE!" diatribe, but these Lebron jokes are reaching Chuck Norris funny status.

And considering how the Heat acted in the Finals with Wade showboating in front of the bench and the making fun of Dirk, I think that Miami gets what it deserves from the public. The Heat asked this upon themselves, not for just joining forces (remember when the Big 3 in Boston did that and nobody had this much venom towards them) but for being cocky punks this season.

Now if you'll excuse me I have to polish my Lebron James NBA Championship ring.
