Return of “The Chosen1”

     It’s finally December 2nd, and, I’ll be honest, I’ve been waiting for this day for months. Tonight, Lebron James and will fellow Heat team will play against the Cavaliers. In Cleveland. This game might be the highest-rated one in the history of the NBA, and no doubt the world will tune in to see the real-life drama play out in grand fashion.

     Right now, I have only questions. Will Lebron do his ceremonious pre-game chalk throw? Will the Cleveland crowd cheer or boo for Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the other Cavalier to sign with the Heat last summer?

     And most importantly of all, will Lebron get hurt, physically and emotionally? No doubt Lebron still has emotional ties to the city he played in for seven years, but will the boos and derisive chants break through his mental defenses? Will the jeers and taunts really hit home, breaking the All-Star’s spirit right on court? Maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part. Heck, just look at the line-up of well-prepared chants for the guy. At least one of those has to get under his skin.

     But something I truly don’t want to see happen is Lebron get hurt physically. Both teams can only hope that the most the crowd will do is voice their opinion with words, not thrown water bottles, beers, etc. Glass bottles are currently under a one-night ban to prevent fans from turning them into lethal objects.

     The perfect situation would be if the Cavaliers triumph with a crushing victory over the simply overwhelmed Heat team, as the crowd derises and boos Lebron everytime he so much as looks at the basketball.
