The Cavaliers played an approximately minute-long video tribute to James during the first timeout of their game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Coming out of the huddle to a heartfelt ovation from the Cleveland crowd, a humbled James repeatedly pointed to different sections of the arena before putting his hands together to gesture thank you.

James responded by lifting the Lakers to a 109-105, come-from-behind victory with 32 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists.

It was the perfect way to end what was an emotional day for James.

James added: “I appreciate these fans, just as much as they appreciate me. Every single night we stepped on the floor, they always showed their appreciation to not only myself, but to my teammates over these 11 years, especially the last four years, those championship runs that we were making, so that was just my salute to them for appreciating what I was able to accomplish with my teammates and coaches along those four years.”

Looks like Cavs fans aren’t as angry the second time around. 

At this point the current Cavs team is so bad, that the appreciation level for LeBron is through the roof.
