Well, let’s not forget that James and the Heat have a second meeting with the Cavaliers on Tuesday Night. Lebron was recently asked if he thought the Cavalier Faithful would unleash the same amount of venom, they directed at him from his last appearance and Mr. James thought it would be a little different.
We get more from The Akron-Beacon Journal:
As James returns to Quicken Loans Arena Tuesday night for the second time as a member of the Miami Heat, what’s left?
”It can’t get no worse than it was December 2,” James told Miami reporters. ”I know that. I know that for a fact.”
Perhaps it was the way James manhandled the Cavs in that first meeting, the Cavs’ miserable season since or the drastic turnover on their roster, but for whatever reason, interest in this game is down. Even Cavs coach Byron Scott senses it from his dealings in the community.
”When I first got here, it was almost everywhere I went, which is understandable,” he said. ”I can’t remember the last time somebody said something about LeBron to me the last three or four months. Even the fans have come to the realization that he’s a Miami Heat and that’s the way it is.”
Four months ago, James was deluged with ”Quitness” T-shirts, chants of ”Akron hates you!” and a sold-out arena that taunted and jeered his every move. It was a bubbling kettle of hate that superseded any other regular-season game in the history of the NBA.
Ah, that brought back some fond memories to say the least and good luck to Lebron on his second appearance back in Cleveland.
