Miami Heat vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Preview, Predictions for LeBron's Return
USA TODAY Sports

This is kind of a big deal.

Whenever LeBron James leads his Miami Heat into battle against the Cleveland Cavaliers, speculation surges and visions of the prodigal son's return home run rampant. To no one's surprise, nothing's changed.

Free agency remains more than six months away. We don't even know if LeBron will make himself available. In the middle of all this hoopla, there's a basketball game to be played. A victory on the line. 

But that won't stop the longing or dreaming.

Courting LeBron Part II begins Wednesday, when the Cavs host the Heat. All of Cleveland will have one eye on Kyrie Irving, as he looks to grab his struggling team a much-needed victory. A necessary sign of hope.

Another eye will be on LeBron, not out of curiosity for how he'll perform—his dominance is like clockwork these days—but out of want for insight. For a sign of his own.

For an indication that he hasn't left Cleveland completely behind.
