LeBron fan can return to arena after team ends ban
CLEVELAND (AP) — The LeBron James fan banned from Cavaliers games after he ran onto the court in 2013 is now permitted inside Quicken Loans Arena.
Wearing a T-shirt that said: “We Miss You, 2014 Come Back,” James Blair spent a few seconds on the floor with the NBA superstar during Cleveland’s game against the Miami Heat on March 20, 2013, before he was grabbed by security. James was not threatened by the fan and went out of his way to pat him on the head as he was being whisked away.
The Cavaliers said Monday the team met with Blair and decided to lift the indefinite ban after it was deemed he did not pose a security risk. The team adds it began reviewing Blair’s ban before James re-signed with the Cavs as a free agent this summer.
