Top 12 Images From LeBron’s Christmas Homecoming Game vs the Heat

“Couple of the best in this generation,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said about the James vs. Wade nights. “Spectacular. I wish I could sit back and enjoy it like a fan, because it’s just fantastic basketball. … However long these two guys play, you’ll get your money’s worth.”

Although LeBron didn’t get a W for his team against his former┬áteam on Christmas, he did get a standing ovation from his old home crowd and did get to share some touching moments with his former Championship teammates before, during and after the 10 point victory for the Heat.

As for us, the basketball fans, we did get our money’s worth with a great game with a lot of great moments.
