LeBron James is set to make his triumphant homecoming to Cleveland, this time as part of the Los Angeles Lakers. However, this wouldn't be the first time Ohio's prodigal will be making a come back to The Q as part of the opposing team. Following his infamous “Decision” to join the Miami Heat in 2010, James' return to Cleveland was met with major heat and backlash from both NBA and Cavaliers fans.

LeBron's former Heat teammate Chris Bosh chimed in on how he felt during that night, per Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

“Man, that was — I'll be honest — that was one of those games I was most afraid of to play in. The only time I was afraid playing basketball was when I was in the eighth grade and we had a fight with another team in a tournament and we had to go back to play them. But the Cleveland game, there was tension. That's the most I'll say. There was tension, but we got out of there alive.

“There were moments during our run — Game 6 in Boston [in 2012] of course — but that game was definitely something very difficult to deal with at the time because people in Cleveland, they let us know how disappointed they were. Even to the point where I got some backlash. I was like, ‘Damn! I didn't even play here!' They were calling me a traitor. I was like, ‘Damn.'

“It was a very fascinating, fascinating night.”

That was one of the most raucous nights in NBA history, and the atmosphere in Quicken Loans Arena was unlike any other. On that night, Cavaliers fans made sure that LeBron felt every ounce of hatred they had for the guy who turned his back on them to take his talents to South Beach. The NBA prepared a tighter security force for that game to ensure the players' safety. The league was definitely concerned that some of the players, especially LeBron, may get hurt from the rowdy crowd. Fortunately, no one was harmed during that evening.

However, the atmosphere should be much different this time around. James is coming back as a hero, as the player who fulfilled his promise, and brought the team its first ever championship in franchise history.
