Usher

Team: Cleveland Cavaliers
Years of Ownership: 2005-present
Championships Won and Playoff Appearances: Zero championships / Five playoff appearances

Just gotta let it burn, huh? We're gonna take a stab here and say he wasn't foreshadowing the city of Cleveland's reaction to LeBron leaving for Miami.
