Heat Vs. Cavaliers: Mo Williams Makes An Apt Analogy About LeBron James' Return

It's cliche to hear athletes and coaches say they are taking things one game at a time, but in light of the enormous hype surrounding LeBron James' return to Cleveland, the Cavaliers coaches and players are doing their best to approach it like a normal regular season game. 

But of course, it's not a normal regular season game. So, try as they might, the Cavaliers have no choice but to accept that this game against the Miami Heat is different. Mo Williams, the one player who admitted he contemplated retirement after James left this summer, probably had the most apt analogy.

Via Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beach-Journal:

"It's almost like your ex-girlfriend coming to your wedding," he said.    

Williams added that he has "nothing" to say to James, and said the team has "moved on." I strongly doubt that, because the NBA is a league of fraternization, but clearly there's no love lost between Williams and James.

As for coach Byron Scott, he too downplayed the significance of the game. But there is no way he could downplay the amount of media members present for his shootaround session. This is via Lloyd on Twitter.
