Cleveland Cavaliers Lift Ban on Kid Who Invaded Court in “2014 Come Back” T-Shirt

In March of 2013, just a few months before LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second straight NBA Championship, a 21-year-old kid named James Blair ran out onto the court during a Cavs-Heat game at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena wearing a white t-shirt with “We Miss You” written on the front and “2014 Come Back” written on the back.

The bold move got the LeBron superfan banned from Quicken Loans Arena for life. However, it also may have set in motion the improbable chain of events that culminated in LeBron actually choosing to return to his hometown this past July. So it was probably worth it.

And now the Cleveland Cavaliers have lifted the ban anyway. Which is good PR, because let’s face it—he’s a genuine hero in Cleveland.

The news was confirmed by SB Nation’s Cavs blog Fear the Sword:

LeBron’s first game back in Cleveland was already going to be pretty special. Now it will be even better.
