Very sadly, I was not watching my local Cleveland newscast for ABC Newschannel 5, nearing the end of Eastern Conference Finals game two when this celebration happened. During the end of their late night news-telecast on Friday, anchors Leon Bibb and Alicia Booth, weatherman Mark Johnson and sportscaster Terry Brooks were still on-air before Lebron’s game-winner.
Sportscaster Terry Brooks appears to see Lebron James hit the game winner (or at least he was signaled) and the full-scale celebration started. Leon Bibb who appeared to be cynically waiting for next year was in shock. Terry Brooks was celebrating and not realizing where he was. Alicia Booth appears to be unsure at the moment of what had happened. Finally, weatherman Mark Johnson appears to “peace out” of the frame.
The best celebration is the random dude in the upper right-hand corner celebrating in the background. (He actually posted the video, still looking for a full name.) He either realizes that he is on camera and gets out of the shot or he is just that happy that Lebron hit it. You also have to like the random scream as it switches to the end of the telecast graphics.
Somewhere Lebron James was saying, “In Your Face, Leon”
