If you didn’t already know, people in Ohio are really excited about LeBron James’ decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But just how excited are they? Well, LeBron is having a homecoming party in Akron, Ohio inside the InfoCision Stadium–Summa Field (home of the University of Akron football team) on Friday evening and ESPN’s Darren Rovell has information about how many fans will be there.
Football stadium in Akron expecting 30K for tonight’s LeBron homecoming. # of Zips games that had that crowd since 2000? ZERO.

It will certainly be interesting to see how tonight’s festivities unfold. The last time James had an introductory celebration was in 2010 with the Miami Heat when he “predicted” eight championships, which he caught a lot criticism for.
LeBron will probably be much wiser this time around and simply talk about how much he loves Akron and the state of Ohio.
James averaged 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game this past season with Miami.
