Cavaliers prepared for LeBron visit
Question of the Day
Fans entering the arena will pass through full-body metal detectors, which have been in place since owner Dan Gilbert bought the team in 2005.
“We have a high standard for security that exceeds what the NBA requires from us,” Carper said. “We don’t want people to feel like they’re in a police state. We’re going to take the proper steps that need to be taken, but we want fans to come down and have a good time.”
Next week, Carper and other team officials plan to appear on radio and local television to remind fans planning to attend the game to act properly.
Cleveland fans don’t seem as edgy as they were in July when James went on national television to announce his decision during a one-hour ESPN special dubbed “The Decision”, which has been spoofed dozens of times. Shortly after James revealed his intentions to team up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, a few fans burned his jersey while others threw rocks at his picture on a downtown building billboard.
The Cavaliers don’t expect violence. But they’re ready just in case.
“We feel confident,” Carper said, “we have a good plan in place.”
