Lebron James Announces His Return To Cleveland Cavaliers

(AllHipHop News) This is not Hip Hop, but Lebron James is the biggest star in the world right now. Earlier today (July 11th), Lebron James posted an essay on Sports Illustrated explaining his decision to leave the Miami Heat and return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James, born and raised in Akron, Ohio joined the Miami Heat in 2010 after seven seasons with the Cavaliers. Lebron debunked any rumors of his departure from the Miami Heat as a result of the Heat’s inability to sign role players and attributed his decision to a desire to bring his hometown a championship:

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.

Following Lebron’s televised announcement on “The Decision” back in 2010, Cavs owners Dan Gilbert posted an angry letter on the team’s official site bashing James for his decision and promising the Cavs would win a championship before James. According to Lebron, he has forgiven Gilbert but does admit that due to the team’s youth, a championship soon should not be expected:

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’s definitely not the biggest (sports) star in the world, especially not with the world cup still going. He may be the biggest sports star in USA right now, but that’s it.

    Anyway, cool to see he does whatever he wants to do. Dude knew he wasn’t going to win no championship with Cleveland, and a career without that title just wouldn’t feel right. Now he’s won it all and can mess around and do it for the love.

      this is true. its like selling 2 platinum albums. once you got that under your belt you dont have to live up to as much

    • justmathoughts

      I dont know about that, lebrons definitely up there worldwide…. especially amongst active athletes …hell he’s actually getting paid to show up at the world cup and he donesnt even play, think about it

      • Dope

        I don’t know where you’re from, but in Europe (and as far as I know Asia, Africa, South America and Oceania) football (or soccer as it’s called in USA) is the number one sport by far, and football stars are the biggest stars. Just look at facebook as one example of popularity. LeBron’s page has 20mil followers, while Cristiano Ronaldo has 90mil, Messi 63mil, Neymar 38 etc.. to name just a few.

        Didn’t hear about him getting paid to be at World Cup, or who paid him. If it’s one of his sponsors who want him to be seen there wearing their merchandise it wouldn’t surprise me since they know that a lot of the world is watching world cup and appearances from athletes who are not footballers would be covered by media.

        i hear you but facebook numbers are just, facebook numbers… i understand how popular soccer players are and everyone knows that it is the biggest sport in the world….. but in my opinion, lebron is just as known as them players if not more because he is more polarizing….theres a lot of people who barely watch basketball (if any at all) that still know who he is, claim to love him or just plain hate on hiim for the sake of doing it…. sure, there is plenty of people with more “fans” than him but he is more of a household name…

      • Dope

        As I said, he is in USA, just not in the rest of the world. I’m in Europe and trust me, people barely ever even talk about basketball. NBA gets in the spotlight a bit during the play offs but that’s about it.

        It’s completely different in USA where almost nobody seems to care about soccer while NBA is something people follow just as passionately as the rest of the world follows football (soccer). Basically LeBron could probably walk some cities here almost being unrecognized, just as Messi or Bale could walk the streets of USA cities and barely be recognized, while in opposite situations LeBron would get crowds around him anywhere in USA, and Messi would have the same anywhere from South America to Japan.

      • justmathoughts

        we’re going to have to agree to disagree on this one

  • oliguti

    Where are all the Miami Heat fans????? In Cleveland. soFTTTT assss fans!!!!!

  • Sean Taylor

    All you bamas saying this would never happen.

    Bye Miami.

  • Executive

    Fairweather fans rejoice!

  • Killuminati

    He got his rings…time to get back to losing ….

  • Reazonero

    I ain’t mad at him. It’s business, nothing personal.

  • The Legendary Troll

    Just like we jump from job to job searching for better opportunities, we cant be mad when athletes do the samee

  • Chris

    Heat fans on my Facebook feed been quiet all day. #thiscannotbelife

  • Chris

    Lebron had to go back to Cleveland. Ohio is his home and he took a dump on his home with that “Decision” show. Bruh wanted to go back home and make things right. Can’t be mad at that.

  • Markus

    Lebron James to Cleveland makes sense. The Heat players around looked really old so this is a better fit for him. Nothing wrong with going home. R.I.P. Miami Heat.

  • Mac Ness

    Now watch how many Cavs fans appear and how many heat fans disappear, so on that note, Go Portland Trailblazers…..born and raised in Portland
