LeBron James is going home and returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron, a native of nearby Akron, Ohio, made the huge announcement via an exclusive interview with Sports Illustrated.

“When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission,” James told SI. “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.”

LeBron was highly criticized four years ago when he announced his decision to leave the Cavs for the Miami Heat in a televised special called “The Decision.” King James took the Heat to four consecutive finals won two championships.
