LeBron James calls Cleveland fans’ campaign “flattering”, then beats Cavs


Cleveland Cavaliers fans who want LeBron James to return home — once he’s completed the rare three-peat after this season — put together a “Come Home LeBron” campaign recently. LeBron said that the campaign was “very flattering” and that “any time you have fans who appreciate the way you play it’s humbling.”

The fans handed out 2,000 t-shirts with “Come Home LeBron” on them before the Heat took on the Cavs on Wednesday night.

“I’m not getting too caught up in it,” James said. “I’m grateful for [fans changing opinions]. I haven’t done the Family Feud thing and surveyed 100 people on the street and said ‘Do you like LeBron or not?’ ”

While that was all good and fun for Cavs fans, they were sent down to a rough reality once the game, you know, actually started and LeBron was still in a Heat uniform.

LeBron and the Miami Heat cruised to a 95-84 victory over the hosting Cavs Wednesday night. LeBron finished with 28 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Ho hum.

He also had this short little LeBron 4-0 run late in the first half. LeBron takeover in 3…2…1
