LeBron James was in a talkative mood on after the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 2 win in Oakland over the Golden State Warriors. He expressed excitement to get home to his wife and children. He expressed an extra motivation that he didn't want to speak on:

That would be fun to speculate on if he hadn't given Cavs a homework assignment for Tuesday night's Game 3. The Warriors fans have a well-deserved reputation for being among the best fans in the league, if not the best. The 2007 "We Believe" Warriors had crowds that were certifiably crazy, in all the best ways. I thought they could have been a bit louder in the first two games of this series, but there are always extraneous circumstances, and I wasn't there. Maybe they were more into it than I realized.
But LeBron James expects more of the Cavs crowd on Tuesday:
"I'm looking forward to seeing our fans and I can't wait to see our fans. I've heard our fans pretty loud before. A couple instances in my first postseason appearance was really loud, and me coming home against the Knicks at the start of the season was pretty good. But I know we can be much, much louder than any fanbase in this league. I know they're getting ready, and I can't wait to see them."
Quicken Loans Arena is the place to be for Game 3.
