So basically what's he's saying is "I wanted rings quickly so I told Cleveland to go **** themselves because they weren't good enough; now I have rings and an opportunity to come back and reshape Cleveland the way I want, so it'll do".

Either way, it should be interesting.

Practically had to at this point. Would have been an act of human cruelty if he decided to stay with the Heat.

Gotta say, I have gone from a hater to a fan. I'm impressed by what he wrote and his decision to go back to his home town and try and win as opposed to just join up with a couple of superstars for easy titles.

That's basically what he did when he left Cleveland in the first place

@PSP107: Might be sticking with "6" to increase jersey sales and to represent the new part of his career and what not.

As have I, and I was the King of the Lebron Haters. Now I can say I am a fan of his. I support him 100% for his decision to go back home.

That's not possible, the Cavs and Wizards are in the East.

99.9% sure he won't go back to 23. He didn't pick that in Miami because he thinks no one but Jordan should have that number.

That makes sense, but I'll argue everybody burned their Lebron jersey 4 years ago =)

I wonder what the fans who burned his jersey are thinking about this.

As a Heat fan obviously I'm sad, but I can't get upset at a guy who brought life to a franchise, won 2 titles, MVPs, and wanted to go home. Luckily the East is so pathetic that Miami might actually field a competitive team next year with Bosh and a couple more solid FA signings.
