Well, we knew it was going to happen and it finally takes place this Thursday, December 2. This is tomorrow…or today…or whenever you happen to read this… LEBRON JAMES RETURNS TO CLEVELAND.
Look, I am one who doesn’t really care about the NBA regular season. I think it’s pretty useless considering the fact that 8 teams make it in each conference. I mean, under-.500 teams make it to the second season. That’s how useless the regular season is.
This game though, I will watch.
I am aware that the Texans-Eagles game is happening around the same time, so picking something for my viewing pleasure will be difficult for some. For me, not so much.
I know Michael Vick will destroy the Texans defense. That’s expected. That’s boring. That’s predictable.
I also know that Cleveland fans will rudely welcome their former "King" to Quicken Loans Arena.
That’s expected, but NOT Predictable. That’s why I think that’s can’t miss TV.
I never had a problem with him leaving Cleveland. He was free to do whatever he wanted. Should he have gone to Miami? Well, I don’t know. I always thought Chicago was a better fit for "his talents". I, like most people, did have a problem with how he did it. There was no need to go on national television to announce the fact that he was departing for "Cuba North". Don’t give me the business about it was for charity, we all know that televised interview wasn’t for the kids.
This game between the Heat and Cavs will be epic. So many questions surround it. Will Lebron do his "powder" ritual at the start? If he does, will someone throw some of their own powder at him from the stands? Will the extra security have to be used? What type of shirts will people wear? What will they say? What creative "diss" will the spurned Clevelandites come up with?
We know they are upset. We expect them to rip into him. How they will do it; that is what I’m anxious to see.
Let’s just hope it doesn’t get out of hand.
This should give you an indication of how people still haven’t let this thing go. You can argue that they should, but why? It’s Cleveland and they actually had a good sports team. Now that’s all gone. Great spoof on the LeBron Nike commercial.
I know Houston has had their share of disappointment, but when you watch this video, you have to feel bad for them. I mean…Michael Jordan alone broke hearts for about 15 years. Another reason why people can’t let it go.
