Cleveland Deli Renames LeBron Sandwich After Nowitzki

Hell hath no fury like a sports fan scorned: Cleveland deli Corky and Lenny's has renamed a signature sandwich after basketball star Dirk Nowitzki since the Mavericks beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, and, more importantly, former Cleveland Cavaliers player LeBron James.

The $10.50 sandwich was formerly known as the "King Size Corned Beef Sandwich" — James' nickname is "King James" — but it will now be called "The Dirk Nowitzki Corned Beef Sandwich" from here on out. Sandwich-based burn.
