LEBRON re est. 2014

LeBron 10-30-14

 

The day, the night and the event was so special and far bigger and more important than the outcome of the game itself. Yes it sucked the Cavs lost 95-90 to the Knicks, but after standing near LeBron in pregame warmups and seeing him soak in everything just like you the fans did, and then interviewing him in the locker room postgame, you could tell how much being back home and the night meant to him.

 

All of the emotions LeBron felt last night, even for a superstar of his magnitude, it had to affect his focusness and ability to play his normal game, and by his standards, he was terrible last night in the contest (5-15fg for 17 points with 8 turnovers). Add on top of that he and his wife Savanah had a baby girl about week ago, it’s been a crazy week even for “King James”.

Lebron Returns - Praying 10-30-14

Being part of his postgame press conference and asking a lot of the question because it seemed like some reporters were afraid to ask questions because the Cavs lost and LeBron played so poorly, I sensed that LeBron knew how special the night was, he enjoyed it, was disappointed in his play, but realized the game wasn’t the most important thing on this night. Coming home was! He was mentally and physically drained after last night’s game. With that out of the way, he and his teammates can fix what they did wrong on the court and now just play basketball.

LeBron Returns - Crowd Lights Out - 10-30-14

 

The atmosphere inside Quicken Loans Arena before the game was unlike any other regular season game and very NBA Finals like. It really was truly amazing.

The Cavaliers issued over 300 media credentials, the most ever in either LeBron era for a regular season game, including even when LeBron came back for the first time with the Miami Heat in 2010.

 

Usher did a nice job with the National Anthem, but what made it so memorable was the entire crowd singing it for about the last thirty seconds. It was a goosebumps moment.

The new scoreboard, the “Humungotron” , even though it had a few malfunctions last night, is awesome! It’s high def, crystal clear video from all angles. Sources tell me that the “Humungotron” and all the LED lights that were put up around the arena cost over $9 million dollars. Humungotron 10-30-14

 

The player introductions were great and when LeBron James was announced it blew the lid off of Quicken Loans Arean. No matter who you were, it was hard not to get caught up in the emotion of the LeBron intro and just everything the entire night was about and that was before the game even started.

 

Lost in LeBron’s return was how well Kevin Love played in his first game as a Cavalier. He was the team’s best player on the floor versus Knicks, scoring 19 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. He’s a double/double machine and is going to be great playing alongside LeBron and Kyrie when they get this thing figured out.

Kyrie Irving was pretty good too. He led the team in scoring with 22 points, while also dishing out 7 assists and grabbing 5 rebounds. However even he admitted last night that at times the offense became stagnant and lacked ball movement because of him and that affected his teammates.

 

 

David Blatt did not have a good first game and he admitted that in his postgame press conference. Blatt knew after the fact that playing basically only 7 guys the majority of the time in game #1 was not a good coaching move. He needed to go to his bench more and not play LeBron and Kyrie 43 minutes each.  He is a rookie coach and learned a valuable lesson in his first game.

It was phenomenal to be a part of that spectacle at The Q last night, but like LeBron and his teammates, we can all just move on and watch this group of new players play and grow into a team that has a chance to be very special come April, May and June.

  1. There’s a very true story about LeBron James that I have been attempting to tell publicly since February 2010. It started with a Scene magazine article called “The Secret to LeBron’s Greatness Landed in my Inbox”. Since 2011 I have posted over 2K tweets @rolanfarr on Twitter. I also had a Facebook page up from 3/17/12 to 3/17/13. I’ve been hated on, blocked, called names and ignored, but I refuse to stop until LeBron and Gloria James respond to this story.
    When LeBron was 3 months old he was raised in the air three separate times and Christened to be the next “Dr J” (Julius Erving) each time. This ceremony took place at the Bottom Half Clothing store inside Rolling Acres Mall in Akron where I was employed. I initiated the ceremony. I was a member of the best basketball team in Akron at that time. We called ourselves “Free Afrika”. Five of my “Free Afrika” team mates participated in LeBron’s “Dr J” Christening. LeBron’s mom Gloria (who helped me at the store a few hours a week) witnessed part of the ceremony. If somebody would ask her, I’m 100% positive that she will confirm my statements. There’s more to the story. When I was three years old, Muhammad Ali picked me up and carried me around. This is mentioned in the Scene article. Dan Coughlin from Fox 8 wrote a book called “Crazy with the Papers to Prove It”. His chapter on Muhammad Ali details the same afternoon that Ali picked me up..April 9, 1964. His book came out 9 months after the Scene article.
    After my team mates left the store, I made three bold predictions to Gloria James about baby LeBron. I told her that he would be an NBA star, would play for the Cleveland Cavaliers and would be a high flying player like “Dr J”. Gloria and I made a handshake agreement (twice) that when LeBron became an NBA star as I predicted she would see to it that each man who participated in his “Dr J” Christening would be made a millionaire.
    I have eyewitnesses, sworn affidavits, trophies and other documentation . I’ve also taken and passed not one, not two, but 3 polygraphs to support my statements.
    I know this story sounds incredible but it’s all TRUE. Check out the Youtube video called “LeBron’s Cosmic Connection”. I’ll post the polygraph results @rolanfarr on Twitter. Ask Gloria James if she remembers LeBron being raised in the air and Christened to be the next “Dr J”. There are several other people willing to take polygraphs and have given sworn statements. I heard LeBron co-produced a show with Disney and ESPN called “Becoming”, that tells the story of his rise to fame. The story of “LeBrons Cosmic Connection” to “Dr J” and Muhammad Ali has to be included. Let the truth be told.
    I hope this story makes its way to LeBron & Gloria so we can get a timely response.
    PEACE
