CLEVELAND – LeBron James is back in Cleveland Wednesday night to play against his former team for the first time since he won an NBA title with the Miami Heat.
After questions about the 23-game winning streak the Heat own right now, the questions quickly turned to LeBron’s return to the city that loved him before he chose to announce he was leaving for Miami in a shocking and controversial nationally-televised event.
“Can’t get no worse than year one. Dec. 2, 2010. It can’t get no worse than that,” James said after being asked what reaction he’ll get from Cavs fans Wednesday night at Quicken Loans arena.

James was heavily booed when he first returned to Cleveland with the Miami Heat in 2010.
“Memories come back of course. I’ve had some really good games here, as a team (Cavs) we played some really big games in this arena so a lot of memories come back,” James said.
James was asked if he wants to come back to play for Cleveland down the road.
“Right now, I’m focused on right now. I don’t really get involved in the road ahead of me. I kind of live in the moment. As a team right now we’re focused on defending our championship and that’s the number one thing,” James answered.
