Heat_LeBron_James_2013 [2]Compare 2010-11 and Tuesday night at Verizon Center and a perfect picture is painted of just how dramatically the reception of James has changed in some cities around the NBA. James received a standing ovation and raucous applause after back-to-back dunks in the second quarter of the Heat’s 100-82 loss.

“It’s a lovefest right now,” Wade said before the game when asked about ESPN The Magazine’s NBA preview, which apparently is dedicated to James.

Lovefest Washington was the first loss of the preseason for the Heat (3-1) — not that losing in the preseason really means much. But an otherwise unforgettable night was made vividly memorable by James’ dunks. The first was a reverse dunk with a double pump that created an audible buzz in the building. The reaction to James’ second dunk, a one-handed alley-oop from Chris Bosh, made Verizon Center feel like the Heat’s home arena.
