The NBA shake-up is real this season with LeBron James returning to the Cleveland ‘Cavaliers’ after four years and two championships with the Miami ‘Heat.’ The sports star told media why he decided to make the switch early Friday.
“My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball,” shared James. “I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now. The hardest thing to leave is what I built with those guys,” said the star of his bitter sweet departure from Miami. “I’ve talked to some of them and will talk to others. Nothing will ever change what we accomplished.”
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh were viewed as NBA heavyweights as they worked together to help their team win back-to-back championships during the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons. Many speculated that LeBron would leave the ‘Heat’ after the team lost to the San Antonio ‘Spurs’ in one of the most intense playoff series that many have seen this past year. Savannah James further fueled those rumors when she tweeted a photo that bore Cleveland’s colors and emblem.
LeBron played for the ‘Cavaliers ‘ during the beginning stages of his career. The NBA star has been a professional athlete since 2003.
