CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - When LeBron James returns to Quicken Loans Arena with the Lakers on Wednesday, he’ll be received far differently than he was when he returned with the Miami Heat on December 2, 2010. On that night, boos continuously rained down on the former Cavalier. On Wednesday night, there will likely be cheers. And a video tribute to the greatest player in Cavs history, courtesy of the team.
Cleveland 19 News has confirmed that the Cavs will honor their former star during a break early in the game.
James left as a free agent for Los Angeles this past summer after four years with the Cavaliers, leading the team to the NBA Finals four straight years and winning a long-awaited championship in 2016.
His run of 11 years with the team, beginning with being the #1 pick in the Draft in 2003 and including his return in 2014, included a total of 5 trips to the NBA Finals.
