LeBron James to sign with Cleveland: 'I'm Coming Home'

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James has made his decision.

For the second time in his career, NBA forward LeBron James has made a decision, this time going back to Cleveland.  James and the Miami Heat appeared in four straight NBA Finals, winning two Championships, over the last four seasons, after seven years with the Cleveland Cavaliers.  James made his first Finals appearance in 2007-2008 with the Cavs.

James, in an essay released via Sports Illustrated, states, "I'm ready to accept the challenge. I'm coming home."

James, a four time NBA MVP, chose to exercise his player option to void the remainder of the six-year contract he originally signed when he moved from the Cavs to the Heat in 2010.

Along with the MVP awards, James is a 10-time All-Star, eight time First Team All-NBA selection, NBA Rookie of the Year in 2004, and won the scoring title in 2008.  He has also won an Olympic bronze medal (2004) and two gold medals (2008, 2012) with Team USA.
