Ready to hear the Garden taunts, LeBron?

It may not be Cleveland, but Madison Square Garden won’t be a welcoming gym for LeBron James on Friday night.

New Yorkers who resent the 25-year-old forward for turning his back on the Knicks’ (16-10) free-agent offer to sign with Miami (19-8) this summer get their chance to show it when James and his Heat visit.

James spurned his home-state Cavaliers and other suitors in his “The Decision” TV special, saying famously: “I’m going to take my talents to South Beach.”

Here are a few jeers and taunts we’d like to hear:

“I’m calling it ‘The Decision’: Regular beer or light beer?”

“Go back to the sixth borough, LeBum!”

“Real men have apostrophes in their names!”

“GAL-LI-NAR-I!”

“I take my talents to the South Bronx!”

“I’ve already seen ’The Lyin’ King’ on Broadway!”

“If you lived here, you’d be home by now!”
