So today heralded what may be one of the most anticipated games of this NBA season, if not of the past several years.
And no, not J-Rich’s return to the Golden State 3-years later (though that one may have been the more enjoyable game), but it was Lebron’s return to Cleveland. I know, I’m just as sick of all the Miami Heat talk and Cleveland fan whining as much as the next guy, but in all honest this game’s worth talking about. I really don’t care for the Heat, but I couldn’t help but feel psyched about this game. Maybe because I was excited to see how often the fans wold boo Lebron, or to see if Lebron would either show off the talents he brought down to South Beach or if he left those talents in Cleveland, but either way it was a must watch.
The outcome was pretty much expected: 118-90 win by the Heat, Lebron had 38/8/5, Wade had 22/9/9 (dang a triple double would’ve really helped my fantasy team), and Bosh is Bosh, but to me it wasn’t the game that mattered, but the feelings in the air of the Quicken Loans Arena.
