Cavs vs. Heat: LeBron James returns: LeBron says he 'has a lot of love' for Cleveland fans

Despite having to listen to a chorus of boos everytime he touched the ball, LeBron James' said at halftime that he still has "a lot of love for the fans here" in Cleveland.

It appears to be a very one-sided relationship.

But James hasn't let the fans' vocal-chord fueled feelings get to him in his first game in Cleveland since joining the Miami Heat. He has 18 points and six assists as the Heat lead, 69-46, with 9:07 left in the third quarter.
