That was a classy homecoming.

When LeBron James was introduced before the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Miami Heat Christmas Day there were mostly applause with some scattered boos.

But after a video tribute to LeBron midway through the game — highlighting the four trips to the Finals and two rings he won in Miami before bolting back home to Cleveland last summer — the Miami fans gave LeBron a lengthy standing ovation. They saluted the good times and, while maybe still a little hurt he left, took the high road.

Well done Miami. Well done.
