Akron kid James had a love-hate relationship with the city of Cleveland, thanks to him forming a Big 3 with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. However, after winning two titles and Finals MVP, the King would decide to return home and keep his promise.
The former ROTY had one of the greatest homecomings in American sports history, and the rest is history. The superstar would deliver on his promise to deliver a championship to City after a more than five-decade drought in one of the NBA’s greatest Finals.

Entering his 20th season, James is currently playing for the LA Lakers, who have been struggling lately. During the recent All-Star Weekend, James talked about playing his final season with his eldest son Bronny, no matter where he is.
Kevin Love reflects on LeBron James’ legacy in Cleveland.
James made a series of bold claims during a press conference at this year’s ASG in Cleveland. The four-time champion hasn’t held back, whether it’s playing with his son Bronny or the door not closing on his return to Cleveland.
“My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for a year. It’s not a question of money at that time.
The eighteen-time All-Star also spoke about a potential return to Cleveland.
“The door is not closed on that. I’m not saying I’m coming back and playing. I do not know. I don’t know what my future holds for me. I don’t even know when I’ll be free.
During a recent interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, former Cavs teammate Kevin Love addressed the rumors surrounding James’ return to Cleveland.
“I feel like it’ll even be cool if it’s one of those things like a one-match kind of thing,” K-Love said. Obviously I know he wants to have a Kobe type outing where he scores 60 and does his thing.
“He will have this statue. I can’t wait for it to go up, I’ll be there.
