CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The day is finally here, hours before Thanksgiving, Northeast Ohio’s own LeBron James will lace up at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Essentials

When: 8 p.m.

Where: Quicken Loans Arena

TV: ESPN

Radio: WTAM 1100 AM; WMMS 100.7 FM, La Mega 87.7 FM.

Online: Watch ESPN, as well as coverage via Cleveland 19 News Facebook and Twitter.

James made the decision to leave the midwest for LA after a crushing sweep in last year’s NBA Finals.

With Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, JaVale McGee and Brandon Ingram by his side the Lakers are 9-7 on the season.

They’ve had a rocky start but nothing can compare to Cleveland’s woes.

The Cavaliers are an ugly 2-13, and things are taking a turn for the worst.

JR Smith is no longer a Cavalier as of Tuesday, the team decided to part ways.

The team will also be without Kevin Love for a number of weeks, while he nurses an injured toe.

Cleveland is looking for growth out of young bucks like Collin Sexton, Cedi Osman and Jordan Clarkson but they can only do so much.

Regardless of how it looks, Tristan Thompson is ready for battle.

As the Cavaliers go through a transitional period, fans have nothing but built up frustration.

Much like James' last departure the Cavs quickly went from one of the top seeds in the Eastern Conference to the bottom of the barrel.

We’ll see what happens

The last time James' returned to play his old squad was in 2010.

The meeting resulted in a blowout, the Cavs fell 118-90, and the Akron native finished with 38.
