Playing against his former squad for the first time since joining the Miami Heat, the NBA superstar was booed and jeered as expected – which he brushed off while performing his pre-game ritual of tossing talcum powder in the air.

Despite deafening chants such as “Akron hates you” taking place throughout the contest, LeBron had no troubles as he poured in 38 points to lead the Heat to a 118-90 victory.

With the lopsided score, James spent the entire fourth quarter on the bench surrounded by dozens of security guards and police officers before being escorted into the locker room without incident.
