For the past few weeks, there’s been much speculation om whether basketball player LeBron James would return to his hometown and team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, after a bitter departure to the Miami Heat four years ago and the team’s defeat in the 2014 Championship to the San Antonio Spurs.
Although no one was quite sure whether James would remain with the Heat or go back to Ohio, James made the official announcement today.
“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,” he writes.
“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,” he continues. _______READMORE
