CHENEY, WA--A Cheney man is on his way home after meeting basketball star Lebron James.
   
Joey Cawyer loves basketball and has been a regular at Hoopfest for years.  He has stage four brain cancer and has always wanted to meet the NBA star.
   
So his friends started a Twitter campaign to get James to meet Joey.  They headed to Portland Thursday night to see the Miami Heat play the Portland Trailblazers and got word that Joey could meet his idol.

Joey got his hat signed by Lebron and also got to meet other players on the Heat.   

While Joey's not able to play his favorite sport anymore, his love for the game and the moment his friends created was still on display Thursday night.
