    CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James is going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    James told Sports Illustrated Friday that he's decided to go home. It's a move that would have seemed unfathomable four years ago, after the venomous fallout that followed his decision to leave Cleveland for the Miami Heat.

    James told SI in a first-person story: "My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now."

    James decides to go back to the Cavaliers

    If LeBron James was going to win another NBA title, heal broken hearts and continue building his legacy, he knew there was only one place to go.

    I love Lebron as a ball player and I respect his decision. I do not think I would go back to Cleveland because of how the fans reacted when he left. I certainly would not work for Dan Gilbert after the nasty letter he wrote. I would still probably do things in my hometown from afar but would not play for the Cleveland team. There may be other circumstances that I am not privy to but on the surface I wouldn’t.

    There's something else going on here:

    I understand a longing for one's roots, but I didn't even know who he was until I read all those nasty, nasty, nasty tweets and letters, etc., that Clevelanders wrote about James. I mean those folk were blasting him left and right. Now this? :10500:

    How LeBron James forgave Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and returned to Cleveland


    [​IMG]

    For four years, the letter had come to define Dan Gilbert, and the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers wanted to wash away the shame and embarrassment and guilt of it all. So Sunday, Gilbert sat down withLeBron James and his inner-circle and tried to absolve himself of a most wretched moment in time.
