BREAKING: LeBron James Going Back Home To Cleveland Cavaliers
UPDATE: LeBron James is headed back home to Cleveland. He announced his decision exclusively via Sports Illustrated.
Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio. It’s where I walked. It’s where I ran. It’s where I cried. It’s where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.

After leaving a meeting with Pat Riley without committing to the Miami Heat, it is being reported that LeBron James is headed back to Cleveland.
Of course this is coming from a source other than LeBron James, so there is no confirmation that we will be seeing LeBron back in a Cavaliers jersey at the beginning of the 2014 NBA regular season. Sheridan Hoops is reporting that LeBron James will indeed be returning to Cleveland and the announcement will soon be made on his official website.
ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard isn’t offering up any info on where LeBron will land, but his sources are confirming that LeBron James did indeed leave a meeting with Pat Riley in Vegas today, and was still undecided.
Many believe LeBron would have committed to the Heat at the meeting if he was going to confirm at all, which makes Cleveland even more of a realistic possibility.

Adding even more fuel to the rumors is the fact that the Cavaliers cleared a ton of cap space—and if that’s not convincing enough, check out these photos that allegedly show moving trucks outside of LeBron’s home today.
UPDATE: According to ESPN sources, Chris Bosh has decided to sign deal with Rockets if James leaves heat.

Where will LeBron land? Do you think he’ll stick with the Heat? Do you think he’ll go back home to the Cavs? Will he end up on a completely different team?
One thing is for sure, there will be no dramatics spared when it comes to his “decision”—but for now, we wait.
