UPDATE: Heat will open season in Boston

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer and, the Miami Heat may open the 2010-11 NBA Season in Cleveland.

Terez Owens wrote, "According to my sources within the Cavaliers organization, the Cavs will host the Miami Heat on Opening Night." 

Branson Wright of the Plain Dealer added, "One source told Starting Blocks that the Miami Heat will open the season at The Q against the Cleveland Cavaliers. If that's true, it will be like the Baltimore Ravens first game in Cleveland against the new Browns."

This would be an absolute dream for basketball fans everywhere, and perhaps be the most anticipated game of the 2010-11 NBA Season.

Keep in mind that security will be at its highest, and LeBron James would probably need to drive a tank to get to the arena alive.

Stay tuned, folks, because this could be a false rumor, or just the most-watched game before the anticipated Christmas Day showdown of Heat at Lakers.
