Chris Bosh Explains Why LeBron’s Return Game in 2010 Was Scariest He’s Ever Played in
- Updated: November 21, 2018
“Man, that was — I’ll be honest — that was one of those games I was most afraid of to play in,” stated Bosh as he recalled that night in December 2010. “The only time I was afraid playing basketball was when I was in the eighth grade and we had a fight with another team in a tournament and we had to go back to play them. But the Cleveland game, there was tension. That’s the most I’ll say. There was tension, but we got out of there alive.
“There were moments during our run — Game 6 in Boston [in 2012] of course — but that game was definitely something very difficult to deal with at the time because people in Cleveland, they let us know how disappointed they were,” Bosh continued. “Even to the point where I got some backlash. I was like, ‘Damn! I didn’t even play here!’ They were calling me a traitor. I was like, ‘Damn.’
“It was a very fascinating, fascinating night.”
James will face off against an ensemble of Cleveland fans on Wednesday night once more as his Los Angeles Lakers come into town to face off against the Cavs. James being booed is highly unlikely after the many years he gave to the Cavaliers along with the city of Cleveland itself.
“Shit, it better not be,” said James referring to the possible negative reaction he’ll receive from Cleveland fans on Wednesday.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s negative, because the only thing that matters is what I gave to the city, what I gave to that community, what I’m still giving to that community. It doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, they have one obligation and that’s to cheer for their team. And I’m not on the team.
“And personally I’m in a whole different space than I was in 2010, so shit doesn’t bother me.”
If James continues his trend of dominating performances against former teams, Cleveland fans may be in for a long night.
