Lebron James return to Cleveland is already marred by trouble

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Miami Heat experienced airplane troubles on their way to Cleveland for LeBron James' first game in the city 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.
