I know the answer is "no" for most, but are there some Cavs fans on here who got over their hatred of LeBron? Just curious about it because it really seems like his public perception has done a 180 (outside of Ohio) over the last year. But what about among Cavs fans? Has time softened the blow? Are you hoping he's going to re-join the Cavs for the 2014-15 season when he can opt out of his Heat contract?
No way LeBron is going to hitch his wagon to D-Wade and Bosh moving forward. He'll look to go elsewhere next summer -- the only question in my book is where. D-Wade looks closer to retirement than he does being an elite player.
Absolutely got over it. Didn't blame him for leaving -just the way he did it. His years in Cleveland were terrific and made the team relevant. Would happily take him back.
Don't hate Lebron anymore, but still hope he loses in embarassing fashion every night. Just the Cleveland fan in me.
Would absolutely take him back.
I don't hate him, I just can't stand him...
Ditto hear. I am over it bit...I imagine he wishes he could of handled things differently. I would take him back and have my fingers crossed that he does. FWIW, he would have a very good ( and young) supporting cast.

I'm over him leaving but I want no part of him coming back. He already felt like he was the best thing to ever happen to the city and the last thing we need is him coming back and saying how he saved the city and his ego suffocating us all over again.
Agreed. Nobody was down on the guy for leaving, it happens. The spectacle and the "doing it for charity" nonsense is what soured me. The "Cleveland is bitter" nonsense makes a great story but its not any worse than any place else would be. Case in point is Hanley Ramirez in Miami. Heres a guy who was TRADED and the boos he got in Miami were outrageous. Last year in Miami, we sat a row behind his family (small children included) and the cat calls and venow spewed was as bad as anything Lebron got in Cleveland. Fans typically dont like ex players who leave, just look at the Kyle Kalis threads if you dont believe me.
Had he not been a Cav, I doubt that there would be many Cav fans other than those from that area. I stopped watching the Cavs when traded Ron Harper for Danny Ferry and Reggie Williams.
Hopefully, they can keep Kyrie. He has me watching the Cavs again.
Still not catching the ever-contagious WHINE-FLU!!!
Give me a break. U are comparing this to Hanley Ramirez? I have not met one Cleveland fan in person who isn't still angry at Lebron and has some sort of nickname for him.
Besides the way he left, how can a city still be so mad at a person who hasn't been arrested and is known by pretty much everyone in basketball as a nice person. It's refreshing to see the people in this thread for the most part being over him leaving, but it doesn't mesh with the huge majority of Cleveland people I know.
Nothing was ever as bad as Lebron's first game back in Cleveland. That was the loudest sporting event I've ever been too. And probably the most fun too
I don't really hate him anymore. He's the best player in the world, I can admit that. I'm still going to root against him whenever he plays and I still would welcome him back to Cleveland in a second.
