Cleveland Browns superfan LeBron James is excited about the team’s newest acquisition Deshaun Watson, but Bron’s enthusiasm for Watson isn’t sitting well with some fans.

On Friday, the Browns announced they had acquired Watson via trade and signed him to a monster $230 million contract that was fully guaranteed.

Not long after the news broke, James celebrated Watson’s trade to Cleveland on Twitter.
