LeBron James introduced in return to Miami

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers travelled to Miami to face the Heat on Christmas for the first time since the star forward returned to Cleveland as a free agent in July.

James, who led the Heat to four-straight finals appearances and two NBA championships, received a warm, but mildly enthusiastic welcome when he was introduced as a starter before tip-off. 

Prior to the game, James spoke with the media about his departure from Miami and what his mindset is now.
