The wait is over, Cleveland. LeBron James is officially back in a Cavaliers uniform.

After the City of Cleveland spent the whole day partying in anticipation of James' first game back home, the moment that everyone—all around the country—had been waiting for was finally here. 

The new-look Cavs, starring James and Kevin Love, were greeted at their season opener against the New York Knicks on Thursday night by a packed Quicken Loans Arena. Of course, James got the biggest ovation during pregame introductions. Then, as the fans requested, James brought back his chalk toss.

The crazy atmosphere in Cleveland even had an NBA player who wasn't playing in the game hyped up.
