Say goodbye to the Miami Heat’s Big 3. The sharpest player of this trident named LeBron James is finally returning to where he came from and probably where he rightfully belongs, back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Sports Illustrated published LeBron James’ first-person essay indication and confirming that he is indeed going to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers this coming NBA season. Fans have witnessed a humbly delivered essay by LeBron which was far from the arrogantly pitched “The Decision”TV special 4 years ago.
Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio. It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. It’s where I cried. It’s where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.
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.
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.
He definitely has what it takes to finally give the Cavaliers a championship. A team which has never won even a single NBA title in 44 years.
With his 11 seasons’ career average of 7.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game, he can undoubtedly back it up with his basketball prowess. At the age of 29, he will be mentoring young guns in Cleveland with the hopes of bringing the championship to Cleveland soon. However, James insisted that the new Cavs team is still a work in progress and that he isn’t fully expecting to become a champion again by next season.
For the second time in NBA History, we will have 4 number one picks on one team.
LeBron James – 2003 #1 overall
Kyrie Irving – 2011 #1 overall
Anthony Bennett – 2013 #1 overall
Andrew Wiggins – 2014 #1 overall
It was first done by the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1988-89 NBA Season with Kareem, Thompson, Magic, and Worthy.
On a lighter note, I have compiled some of the funniest photos and memes that have been circulating around the Internet right after LeBron James made “The Decision 2.0”:
The photos above were dedicated to all the Miami Heat “Bandwagon” fans out there who are expected to jump into the Cavaliers’ ship now that LeBron is no longer a Heat player. They say that the Heat fans are one of the worst NBA fans ever. We will see how many “True Blooded Heat Fans” will remain next season.
Cleveland Cavaliers fans who cursed and hated LeBron James when he left them in a very rude manner are now searching for their burnt LeBron Jersey and are now rejoicing because “King James” is finally back. One Cavs fan was even spotted wearing his wrecked LeBron jersey during a baseball game.
What a “classy” act by the Miami Heat fans. After they heard the news about LeBron, they defaced this wall painting probably due to anger or extreme disappointment.
Ever wondered how did the Heat’s NBA Finals rival and reigning champion San Antonio Spurs react to LeBron James’ decision? Nothing. They remained as composed and calm as they usually do and is now looking for a person with and “Air-Con/ HVAC” knowledge to avoid LeBron James from experiencing this if ever he will reach the NBA finals again.
