CLEVELAND (AP) - They waited in line to see him, and when LeBron James ran onto the new court inside Quicken Loans Arena for the first time in four years wearing the Cavaliers’ wine and gold colors, Cleveland fans welcomed him back with a thunderous roar they’ve been waiting to unleash.

James has returned to where he began his NBA career, focused on leading the Cavs to the city’s first pro sports championship since 1964.

Nearly 17,000 fans showed up Wednesday night to watch the Cavaliers hold their annual scrimmage, a glorified practice that provided Cleveland with its first look at a team transformed this summer by the return of James and a trade for All-Star forward Kevin Love. James scored 13 points, Kyrie Irving had 10 and Kevin Love nine.
