The Miami Heat will make a stop to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers tomorrow, December 3.

A regular NBA game, noted, until you realize that LeBron James will make a stop in Cleveland to face his ex, the Cavaliers.

James of course, decided to inform the city of Cleveland that he is leaving the Cavs to join the Miami Heat, courtesy of an infamous TV special called “The Decision” last July. The dude may have  his reasons, but that's almost like the worst break-up evarrrr. Reckon he could have done it in a better way—but you know, he must have his reasons.

Billboards were scrapped, jerseys were burned, and threats were made. Exceptional security measures have long been arranged for his return to Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena, but James himself has expressed minimal concern on this issue.

“It’s going to be a real hostile environment, I know. I’m not concerned at all,” says James during an interview. “The league is a good league and they do their best to try to make sure us players and the fans have a great time in those games.” Okay, King.

The cons of his decision will possibly go on for years, so he might as well learn from fellow players who have gone to ruin their ties with their respective NBA teams:

Allen Iverson vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Once a franchise player, Iverson started having issues with management in 2004, culminating to a fall-out between him and Coach Chris Ford for refusing to play from the bench.  "At a certain point, you have to come to grips with the fact that it's not working,” says Sixers chairman Ed Snider. “He wants out and we're ready to accommodate him." He was traded soon after.

A reunion between both parties did suffice, though you probably know how that ended up:


Next: Cavaliers, again!?
