LeBron James Is Going Back To Cleveland
LeBron James is going home!
After snagging two rings, the MVP is trading in his Miami Heat jersey for his old Cleveland Cavaliers get-up.
“My relationship with northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now,” he said in an announcement on Sports Illustrated. “I’m not promising a championship. I know how hard that is to deliver. We’re not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but I’m realistic. It will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010,” he added.
LeBron made the decision to trade teams four years ago in the highly publicized “decision” that left some Cleveland fans burning jerseys.
He also confirmed that his wife Savannah is having a girl, in the essay:
“I always believed that I’d return to Cleveland and finish my career there. I just didn’t know when. After the season, free agency wasn’t even a thought. But I have two boys and my wife, Savannah, is pregnant with a girl. I started thinking about what it would be like to raise my family in my hometown. I looked at other teams, but I wasn’t going to leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland. The more time passed, the more it felt right. This is what makes me happy.
