LeBron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. He announced the decision in an exclusive, first-person Sports Illustrated article.

“My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball,” James said. “I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.”

On ‘The Decision’ to go to Miami in 2010: “If I had to do it all over again, I’d obviously do things differently, but I’d still have left. Miami, for me, has been almost like college for other kids. These past four years helped raise me into who I am. I became a better player and a better man. I learned from a franchise that had been where I wanted to go. I will always think of Miami as my second home. Without the experiences I had there, I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m doing today.”

On Cavs owner Dan Gilbert's scathing letter in 2010: "I’ve met with Dan, face-to-face, man-to-man. We’ve talked it out. Everybody makes mistakes. I’ve made mistakes as well. Who am I to hold a grudge?"

This time, LeBron James isn’t holding a live TV event, press conference or party. This time, it’s all about getting back to work on building the Cleveland Cavaliers into a championship contender.

“I’m not having a press conference or a party,” James said. “After this, it’s time to get to work.”

What about Kevin Love?


Attention in Minnesota returns to Kevin Love. Cleveland has been a rumored trade destination for Love, who is entering his final season under contract with the Wolves. The Cavs have trade assets like No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, but they likely wouldn't pursue Love without the assuredness of him signing a contract extension.
