If you are a basketball fan, I bet you have been talking about this one. LeBron returns to Cleveland tonight for the Heat vs. the Cavaliers game (TNT 8 p.m. ET), wearing his Heat Jersey and entering the visitors locker room. The bitterness of Cleveland fans will come out tonight, and the question is how bad will it show as LeBron takes center stage at Quicken Loans Arena?
Police and Cavaliers have increased security in case of any mishaps that may take place. Some fans and officials wonder if the animus toward James will lead to ugly scenes in and around the arena. The Cavs talked with the Heat and NBA about their security plan and the Cavs say their safety protocol already exceeds league requirements. With that said, there will be even more uniformed and plain-clothed officers inside and outside the arena.
“I’m ready for whatever response I’m going to get. It’s going to be very emotional,” James said Tuesday. “I give a lot of thanks to that city, to those fans for giving me the opportunity to not only showcase my talent, but to grow from a young boy to a man during my seven years. So it’s going to be very emotionally draining.”
