Call it karma. Feel free to snark that the Miami Heat hasn't gotten off the runway at all this season. Or that the team's airplane, like the Heat, is all engine and no flaps.

The team's airplane experienced mechanical problems en route from Miami to Cleveland for LeBronmageddon/LeBroncalypse/LeBronnukah/just another NBA game tonight against the Cavaliers.

A member of the crew of the Heat's plane reported a "flap issue" on a wing early Thursday on its approach to Cleveland Hopkins airport, airport spokeswoman Jackie Mayo said. Two fire trucks were sent out to the runway, which is standard procedure, after the alert was issued. The plane landed safely at 2:30 a.m. EST, Mayo said.

So, the game, LeBron James' first in Cleveland since he opted to take his talents to South Beach, is on.

I didn't see this posted, and thought that it was kind of interesting. do you think this is a random circumstance, or a sign of things to come tonight.


CLEVELAND -- The Miami Heat experienced airplane troubles on their way to Cleveland for LeBron James' first game there since he left the Cavaliers.

Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman for Cleveland Hopkins airport, says the crew of the Heat's plane reported a wing "flap issue" early Thursday as the aircraft was on its approach. An alert was issued at the airport and two fire trucks were sent out to the runway, which is standard procedure.

Mayo says the plane landed safely around 2:30 a.m.

The Cavaliers host the Heat Thursday night in Cleveland, five months after James angered Cleveland fans by announcing his departure for Miami. Extra security measures have been implemented for the game to prevent trouble and to protect James.

Merely a coincidence. No need for people to get their panties wet expecting "things to come tonight."

Nope his strategy is to make it so no one else want's to touch the ball. He's even throwing the tip off to himself jumping against himself.

I added a link and fixed the thread title.

Discuss the events (even though there probably isn't much to discuss) and keep the attacks and baiting out of it or this thread will be closed.

wow you people get a :facepalm:

this is bad just imagine if something really did happen! all nba team planes need alot of parachutes

ive always wondered if a pro sports team plane crashed what the league would do? would they fill the roster of the team with free agents if all the players died what could they do? do they forfeit every game that team plays wtf could they do?

this is another reason why a bunch of allstars shouldnt be on the same team that just means a loss a players and a loss of some elite
