News of Lebron James' election to rejoin the embittered Cleveland Cavaliers gave everyone a shock on Thursday afternoon. James produced a letter discussing his decision to leave the Miami Heat where he claimed, "Not one, not two, not three, not four...", in reference to how many championships that Miami would produce.
His self-proclaimed victories were perhaps haunted by the burning of his jerseys by betrayed Cleveland fans the next day. However, somehow, James has put all of these aspects in the past and agreed to right his wrongs in the following season.
News outlets around the country seemed to be hanging onto James' every move in the days leading up to his brief promulgation.
The question still remains, was it for the love of money or reparation for the ample amount of Cleveland hearts he shattered?
Maybe the sheer heat of the Miami Heat was too great a burden for him to bear. Their disappointing loss to the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs this year may have brought James pause. With Dwyane Wade far from his prime and Chris Bosh not being able to offer the extra assist needed to win, this may have been a sinking ship.
Regardless, LeBron is heading back to the place he called home for so many years. We'll see if he and Kyrie Irving can turn the Cavs into something more.
