Five months ago LeBron James decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, and now he’s back for his first game against his former team at his former home court.
Surely this will be a unique experience for James. The Cleveland fans will not surely be happy to see their former hero playing, not for them, but against them. It is understandable to see that this set of people will not throw a welcome party for “The King.” I can already hear them shouting “Boo!” from the background while James will try to ignore their rants and angst against him.
The level of venom against James is surely insurmountable. However, James is trying to be optimistic and determined, even with the upcoming chaos. He told the AP (Associated Press) that he will be the same James everyone expects to see and will remain respectful for the fans that supported him for seven years of his basketball career.
“It’s one game,” James said. “I know everyone is making it a huge deal, but it’s one game.”
