LeBron James tweets fan who ran on court

On Wednesday, when a Cleveland fan ran onto the court during Miami’s game against the Cavaliers game wearing a shirt that read “We Miss You” on the front and “2014 Come Back” on the back, LeBron James didn’t even flinch.

In fact, he gave the fan a pat on the head as he was escorted off the court by security.

On Thursday, the fan, James Blair, tweeted: “@KingJames appreciate you showing love when I came on the floor last night follow back homie!!!#TeamLeBron”.

And James continued with to show kindness, responding via Twitter, (Yessir! Brave guy).

James said after Wednesday’s game that he wasn’t concerned about his safety.

“He said he missed me and come back, please,” James said. “It happened once before in (Madison Square) Garden, so I wasn’t worried. There are metal detectors here, so we were OK. I embraced it.”

Despite the manner in which he left Cleveland for Miami after the 2009-10 season, it’s clear some Cavs fans are hopeful that he’ll return. James, though, says he not even thinking about his future.

“Right now, I’m focused on right now,” said James prior to Wednesday’s game against the Cavailiers. “I don’t really get involved in the road ahead of me. I kind of live in the moment.”
