Ironically, on the same day (or night), Danny Heatly returns to Ottawa for the first time since he bolted to San Jose. I doubt they will be throwing rose petals on the ice when he comes out. Also, I wonder how Chris Bosh will be received when Miami comes to town?
There's been other homecomings in sports. Some athletes have received good praise (MJ returning to Chicago with the Wizards), while others have not (A-Rod returning to Seattle with Texas and then to Texas with the Yankees, Favre back to Green Bay with the Vikings).
But what separates LeBron is not only how he left with a national primetime special in the States, but the fact that LeBron is originally from the Cleveland area, and is the home-grown son who made it big with the Cavs on an International stage, only to bolt out of town.
