LeBron James Didn’t Mention A Major Factor In His Decision To Return To Cleveland

LeBron James Didn’t Mention A Major Factor In His Decision To Return To Cleveland, LeBron James says he is “coming home” to Cleveland on a mission to bring an NBA championship to his home state and because he wants to raise his family in his hometown of Akron and to show kids in Northeast Ohio that there’s no better place to grow up.

The reasons cited in his Sports Illustrated announcement make him sound like a saint or at least like a man with (this time around) a good understanding of public relations, and they seem legitimate, too. But they’re not the only reasons why James is leaving the Miami Heat for Cleveland Cavaliers.

It also comes down to basketball, how James did not want to get stuck on a Miami team with aging superstars who provided less help each year and a bench that wasn’t getting much better, how he would rather join a talented young Cavaliers team with (through absurd draft shenanigans) players like 2011 #1 draft pick Kyrie Irving, 2014 #1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins, and 2013 #1 draft pick Anthony Bennet who may be traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the excellent Kevin Love.

James did not mention the appeal of having new teammates, but its importance is obvious.

“I think LeBron would have stayed in Miami – for at least one or two more years – if he truly believed he had a chance to keep winning there,” Bill Simmons speculates in a extensive column at ESPN’s Grantland.
