LeBron James Court-Rusher Has Insane Collection of King James Memorabilia

Meet James Blair: part-time crazy person, full-time LeBron James fan.

The nation met Blair last night during Wednesday's matchup between the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers

Blair stormed the court at Quicken Loans Arena during the fourth quarter wearing a “We Miss You” LeBron shirt. The back of the shirt read "2014 Come Back."

The game resumed, with the Heat storming back from a 27-point deficit to win the game in a wild, unthinkable comeback. But a strange funk lingered in the air after the court-storming, begging the question, “What just happened here?”

The answer is this: An Ohio man who cares deeply about LeBron and Cleveland basketball finally took a stand. And as you might have guessed, the storming appears to have been a premeditated affair on Blair's part.

And while the above conversation reads like the drunken courage of a kid who lost a bet, there appears to be more to the court-storming than just a shameless ploy for attention.

Don’t believe me? Here’s an image of Blair’s bedroom that was posted to LeBronJames.com in April 2012:

According to LeBronJames.com, Blair, 20, is a collector of all things King James, who allegedly inspired him to take up basketball as a young boy. And judging by the photographs, we believe it.

Blair claims to own “about” 35 James jerseys/T-shirts, 10 pairs of shoes and three “life-size items” (two Fatheads and a cardboard cut-out), among other treasures.

And if you still feel like you can sleep tonight, Blair also claims to have gotten his hands on “rare high school yearbooks” and other memorabilia dating back to LBJ’s days at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.

With this knowledge, the entire scene from last night comes into better focus. What appeared like a mad grab for attention was in fact a genuine plea from perhaps his biggest fan in the world.

And while an isolated event, Blair’s act last night raises the question: Is this indicative of a larger, underground sentiment gaining momentum?

Are the tides finally turning in Cleveland?
