On December 2nd, Lebron James made his first return to Cleveland after a July 8th decision that had him “taking his talents to South Beach.”
He brought his talents back from South Beach and erupted for 38 points on his former team, delivering a crushing blow out win in front of a sell out crowd full of Cavaliers fans that booed James for three hours straight.
On March 29th, he will return to Cleveland for the second time this season. Again, with the Miami Heat to take on his former team, but is likely to face a less hostile crowd this time around.
Reports out of Cleveland are that the tickets for tonight’s game aren’t even sold out, and those that are being re-sold by area ticket brokers are valued at about half the price they were back in December.
As a town loses interest in it’s struggling Basketball team, who was 7-10 at the time of James’ first visit, and as gone just 7-48 since, it may be just another day at the office for LeBron James tonight. An office that he is very comfortable working in, hostile crowd or not.
This will be the fourth and final time Miami plays Cleveland this season, with the Heat winning all three of the previous games.
Look for a big game from King James as the Heat try to separate themselves from the Boston Celtics as the number two seed in the Eastern conference.
