LeBron James gets massive welcome home party

LeBron James Gets Massive Welcome Home Party


This is only part of the massive preparation for LeBron James' welcome home party that took place Friday in Ohio.

And this was the result. Thirty thousand local fans greeted the basketball star shortly after 9:00 PM at the University of Akron.

The state has been more than welcoming since LeBron announced he was coming home.



A state lawmaker plans on introducing legislation to allow the sale of license plates honoring his return.

And since the 29-year-old announced he was leaving the Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers last month, fans and reporters have been swarming his home in Bath Township.

Someone even created a Twitter account for his lawn that eventually crashed.

One day he will get a better offer $$$ and he'll run to exit Cleveland, see ya, suckers! A leopard doesn't change it's spots.

NBA is nothing but business. If Cleveland want to keep him for the rest of his career, they should pay his price, short and simple. This is his prime time, and he is making good use of it, I would too. I don't care what you say or how you feel about it.

birds2nv... He may run; but while he is there,. the people of Cleveland will honor him. This is more than many players get in other cities.

Just saying moron, just because he thinks it's too over the top doesn't mean he's "gating" on anyone. Are you 6 years old? Grow up pinhead

LeBron, welcome back to the town that ripped you a new one till they couldn't rip no more and burned your jersey(s) like you were being hung at a Klan rally.

It must be for the $$, because any person with any ounce of brains would tell the vile creatures of that God forsaken city to take a long walk off a short plank.

And no, I haven't been there. There isn't any amount of money to get me there.

When LeBron the mercenary went to Miami they had a party for him and the entire country vilified him and Miami. Now he returns to Cleveland they throw a party and it is just fine. The entire country is full of hypocrites. mLeBron will never win a title in Cleveland because there is something called Karma and IT WILL BITE HIM IN THE ASS.
