Basketball fans view Oct. 30 as the day that LeBron James will play in his first regular-season home game since signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer. However, he has already gotten his first home game back in Akron, Ohio, out of the way.

In a commercial for Sprite, James returns to Patterson Park in Akron, much to the delight of fans, to take in his first "home game." Even though the people of Akron have already seen LeBron on the court, here's guessing Thursday night's season opener will still be a crazy atmosphere at The Q.
