LeBron James Returns to Cleveland: Better Get the Skylar Grey Ready

Screencap from Sports Illustrated

After a couple of days of radio silence, LeBron James, the gem of the 2014 free agency class, broke the news to Sports Illustrated just after noon on Friday: He’s going back to Cleveland.

In a collaborative essay with Lee Jenkins, James starts out by saying, “Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio,” and admits that he didn’t realize how important his home was until he left. He also downplays any bad blood between him and anyone on the Miami Heat team, players or management. The final Cavaliers roster, and whether it still contains Andrew Wiggins, is unknown.

And we already know what the soundtrack to each and every one of the 64 kajillion “Return” themed commercials is going to be. You probably do, too. Yup, it’s the intro to that Diddy (who is now Puffy, again, we think) song. The intro is 30 seconds long for a reason, after all. Seriously, push play on the video below and you can almost see the Nike ad in your mind’s eye.
