Sitting in front of a pile of discarded shirts honoring former Cleveland Cavaliers NBA star LeBron James, Yours Truly restaurant manager Christina Weiner holds up the t-shirt that is being exchanged for the turned-in tops at the eatery in Beachwood, Ohio on Tuesday, July 20, 2010.  Organizers of the shirt swap plan to send the discarded shirts to a homeless shelter in James' new city of Miami, and proceeds from the sales of the "It's Not Us, It's You" shirts will go to homeless shelters in Cleveland.
