LeBron James returns to Cleveland for Heat-Cavaliers game

December 2, 2010 |  4:37 pm


Even President Obama is weighing in on LeBron James' return to Cleveland tonight as his Miami Heat take on the Cavaliers: “It's going to be brutal.”

AN AP reporter caught up the James in the lobby of the hotel the Heat are staying at and got in one question: Is James ready for whatever Cleveland fans have in store for him?

“Yes sir,” James replied. “I will be. I will be.”

James' hyped return has been building for five months, since he announced to the world during a one-hour ESPN television special that he would be aligning with fellow stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach.

There will be uniformed police and undercover officers throughout Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena to keep an eye on more than 20,000 fans who will holler at James.

We will have live quarter-by-quarter updates here on the Fabulous Forum when the game starts at 5 p.m. Pacific.
