LeBron James made sure the Miami Heat enjoyed a family atmosphere and a big meal on Thanksgiving despite being on the road. James hosted the two-time defending NBA champions for the big meal on Thursday in his hometown of Akron, Ohio

A night earlier, James was greeted by fans wearing "Come Home LeBron" T-shirts as the Heat played the Cavaliers in Cleveland. After the Heat's 95-84 win, he made his teammates feel at home.

"As a team we would love to be here [in Miami] for the holiday and Christmas," James said, via Shandel Richardson of the Sun Sentinel. "We don't mind playing on those holidays, but we wish we could be here. I am happy that I'm able to do something for the team for Thanksgiving."

By the looks of the photos that James and his guests shared on Instragam, he was able to put together quite a spread for his teammates in his hometown.

Heat point guard Mario Chalmers showed off a picture of his plate and it looked like all the Thanksgiving staples were accounted for in Akron.

While every aspect of Thanksgiving feast at the James household looked top notch, LeBron singled out his wife's red velvet cake as being particularly delicious.

Asked about the team's Thanksgiving plans earlier in the week, Dwyane Wade described James' home as a "gotta-take-your-shoes-off-at-the-door type of house," according to NBC 6 South Florida.

He wasn't kidding.
