Returns to Cleveland

Announcement

James decides to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.  In a Sports Illustrated story, James says:

When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.

Miami Heat managing general partner Micky Arison posts on Twitter:

I am shocked & disappointed in today’s news. However I will never forget what Lebron brought us for 4 years. Thanks for memories.
