Half Smokes Hypothetical: Athletes You'd Never Cheer For

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion that's not meant to be based in reality. Please don't take it too seriously.      


It took long enough, but finally, someone wrote a detailed article about why LeBron James should sign with the Wizards. That someone was former Washington Post reporter Michael Abramowitz, who did so for the Sunday Washington Post Outlook section. 


Without getting too much into the argument right now (because we'll talk about it another time), the obvious ramification to LeBron signing here is that one of DC's most hated athletes will become one of our own. So for today's hypothetical, I'll pose this question.


Are there any elite professional athletes that you would refuse to root for if they played for a DC team? If so, which ones? Would LeBron James be one?
