James Return Makes Cavaliers NBA Favorites
You can hear the weeping from South Beach from here. LeBron James, who helped bring a pair of NBA Championships to Miami, is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Four years after departing to seek an NBA Championship, James goes back to Cleveland to try and win one for the hometown folks.
It’s a scenario many saw as unlikely. In the aftermath of The Decision, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wrote a scathing letter, accusing James of among other things, being a “coward” by leaving Cleveland. Obviously, both men realized the situation was emotional, put it behind them, and have now joined forces to give the Cavaliers a winning team.
“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 judge?” James said in an open letter to explain his decisions.
It sounds like a good deal for everyone and it’s certainly a good deal for the fans in Cleveland who seem overwhelmingly willing to welcome LeBron James back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
