Visiting his former team in Cleveland on Wednesday, when a fan ran onto the court while the Heat were taking on the Cavaliers, it was probably easy for LeBron James to assume the worst. Nonetheless, the fan appeared to be a fan of King James (His shirt appeared to read “We miss you.”), security quickly subdued him, and that was that.
In many ways, it wasn’t any different than the plethora of crazy fans who decide to interrupt their favorite sporting event. However, this one has at least one different: It was well-documented on social media.
Deadspin initially identified the Twitter account of a man purporting to be one James Blair, who appears to be the man who ran onto the court of Quicken Loans Arena. Blair identifies himself on his profile as the “Biggest @KingJames fan ever!!!” and, moreover, the account indicates that the crime was very much premeditated — and that Blair has since been released from confinement. Check out a few choice tweets below:
Question of the day. Will @ja...

With the memory of LeBron James’ return to Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night (his fourth time as a visiting player) still fresh in the minds of Clevelanders — not to mention the Miami Heat’s triumphant comeback against the Cavaliers and all the odd things that occurred during the game — the Cleveland Plain-Dealer conducted an online poll on the paper’s website asking...
Goodness, Cleveland. Have you no pride? The Cleveland Cavaliers were up as many as 27 points against the unstoppable Miami Heat in the Quicken Loans Arena last night, before they eventually rolled over and died. The Heat won their 24th consecutive game – nine games shy of the NBA record set by the 1971-72 World Champion Los Angeles Lakers – as they ripped off a 45-14 run to overcome...
LeBron James talked about his monster dunk on Jason Terry, saying that it was "sweet" to dunk on the Celtics guard. Why do you think?
The King returned to the court where it all started in his NBA career. LeBron James returned to the Quicken Loans arena to play his former NBA team the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game the Heat almost lost. It started out with a leaking scoreboard that would delay the game for 40 minutes.
It ended with a fan charging onto the basketball court wearing a t-shirt that made LeBron the offer...
His teammates called him "Elvis" because of his fame. They laughed when he donned a wig and sunglasses so he could walk around a mall without being noticed.
Yes, LeBron James was big news when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers 10 years ago, But could anybody have envisioned back then the prodigy from Akron, Ohio, would end up being this legendary of a player?
As a skinny...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are about to play another game in Cleveland.
That's what a 23-game winning streak will do for a team.
It mutes even the LeBron-Goes-Home-Again hype.
Someday the Heat will lose another basketball game. Maybe even Wednesday night, when the reigning NBA champions drop by James' old neighborhood to take on James' old team, which happens...
LeBron James has taken it to Boston's Jason Terry again.
Miami's superstar said Wednesday that he ranks his monster dunk over Terry on Monday night as one of his best, and that it's one of his favorites because of his history with the talkative Celtics guard. James soared and grabbed a lob pass before smashing it over Terry, who was helpless to defend the shot or himself...
Tweet There have been quiet murmurs over the past year or so about LeBron James’ impending free agency that is coming after next season. Obviously one possible destination being thrown around is James’ first stop in the NBA, Cleveland. The idea was fueled by the fan that ran onto the floor wearing a “We Miss [...]
Brandon Knight and Jason Terry both have been the victims of humiliating dunks courtesy of Clippers' DeAndre Jordan and Heat's LeBron James respectively.
Both dunks were absolutely filthy, worthy of being named Dunk of the Year but only one can be chosen tops between the two.
Each have their similarities and differences. Jordan's alley-oop dunk over Knight was explosive...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a remixed clip of DeAndre Jordan's dunk on Brandon Knight using audio of WWE announcer Jim Ross freaking out.Now, LeBron James dunk over Jason Terry has received the Jim Ross treatment and it is hilarious:
It would have been poetic if the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers had been able to beat LeBron James and the Heat in Cleveland to stop Miami's winning streak at 23--would have been.
At one time down by 27 points, the Heat overcame their largest deficit of the season to go on to win 98-95.
For a time it looked like they were going to be able to do just that after a 23-3 run...
March Madness has started a day early, only the Cinderella team didn’t pull it out this time. Cleveland Cavaliers were up 67-40 with 7:44 left in the third quarter against the NBA champs, Miami Heat, in their own building, without all-star, Kyrie Irving, in front of a hostile crowd, AND LOST! What gives? This was the chance, at redemption, to give their beloved traitor...
Another game, another double-digit rally for the Miami Heat.
And most importantly, another win.
LeBron James scored 29 points, Dwyane Wade added 19 and the Heat extended their winning streak to 25 games by pulling away in the second half and beating the Detroit Pistons 103-89 on Friday night.
Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers scored 11 apiece for Miami, which shook off yet another...
