As if Cleveland sports weren't downtrodden enough, now they have Detroit taking shots at them.

During a preseason game between the Lions and Browns, Detroit wide receiver Nate Burleson had an interesting way of celebrating his, well, meaningless touchdown.

After making a great grab at the back of the endzone, Burleson turned towards the Cleveland crowd and mimicked LeBron James' pre-game powder toss routine. As everyone knows, LeBron is a little bit of asore subject around Cleveland.

Burleson told the AP that he had another celebration in mind prior to the game: A re-creation of Michael Jordan’s famous shot over Craig Ehlo that knocked the Cavaliers out of the playoffs in 1989.

No word on whether Burleson created an alternative celebration that paid homage to the Indians impending second place finish in the AL Central.
