In fact, James sang nothing but praise for Cleveland and Ohio during the All-Star Weekend, repeatedly talking about how much he loves Cleveland and how special a city it is.
LeBron on Cleveland hosting the All-Star Game: "It would be cool if when they do the top 100 25 years from now, if it was back here."

When asked about Cleveland hosting another All-Star Game in the future, James said, “it would be cool if when they do the top 100 25 years from now, if it was back here.”
The idea of Cleveland hosting the All-Star Game again at the NBA’s 100th anniversary after holding it this year for the 75th is surely tantalizing to Cleveland fans – but will it happen?
James Loves Cleveland
James has always adored his hometown, even when they weren’t seeing eye to eye.
After he initially left Cleveland for the Miami Heat, he was seen as a villain by many.
But James made good on winning a championship for the team years later when he returned and took them to victory in the Finals.
James’ adoration of Cleveland and all of Ohio goes beyond basketball too.
He helps the city in some major way, including the youth, with charities and his I Promise public school.
So it’s no surprise that he is publicly supporting the city in such a big way.
With 30 teams in the league, it will definitely be a while before Cleveland gets another All-Star Game so the chances of it being home to the 100th-anniversary game might actually be possible…especially if James is one of the ones cheering them on and supporting the idea.
