Friday will be the first time in 1541 days since Cleveland media has seen LeBron James in a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform.
The frenzy will begin Friday at Cleveland Clinic Courts. You can watch LIVE at 12:30 p.m.
LeBron took off to Miami in 2010 and in his four years there the Heat went to every NBA Final, they lost the first appearance and their last. James felt Miami was a better place to win a championship rather than here in Cleveland, that seemed to be true because he now has two rings on his hand.
When LeBron James left there was debate that he was the best player in the league. Now he is considered by almost everyone to being the best player on the planet, so you can imagine the frenzy that would be going on at Cleveland Clinic Courts and the Q this year.
Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters are back for the Cavs. Kyrie signed a 5 year/90 million dollar extension with the Cavs in the offseason. The Cavs are built to win a lot of games, including championship games over the next few years.
Just when you think the Cavaliers couldn't have a better offseason, the Cavs received former Timberwolves Forward, Kevin Love in a trade. Love is considered to be a top 5 player in the NBA. The Cavs had to give up their last two first overall selections in Anthony Bennett, and Andrew Wiggins.
They also hired a new coach in David Blatt. Blatt has been successful everywhere he's coached. His resume is impressive being 6-time Israeli Cup Champion, 5-time Israeli League Champion, and 4-time Israeli League Coach of the Year.
It will also be the first time we see other new additions in a Cavs uniform. Forwards James Jones, Shawn Marion, and Mike Miller joined the Cavaliers this offseason to help LeBron achieve a dream of his to win a title for Cleveland.
The projected starting line up is, PG Kyrie Irving, SG Dion Waiters, SF LeBron James, PF Kevin Love, C Anderson Varejao.
