James has been linked to several teams, including the Miami Heat, where he’s one two championships, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team who drafted him, the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers.. just to name a few.
The newest report, via Yahoo! Sports claims that Jame’s agent, Rich Paul, is reportedly pushing hard to have LeBron reunited in the city that loves and hates him. The city where it all began. The city where James has unfinished business. His hometown (area).. Cleveland.

James was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2003. he played seven seasons with the Cavs, but ultimately chose to depart for the Miami Heat, as the Cavaliers just couldn’t seem to muster a good enough team around James, and the hopes of a championship never reached fruition
James averaged 27.8 points, 7.0 assists, and 7.0 rebounds per game over the span of seven seasons with the Cavaliers. Including two 60+ win seasons and one NBA Finals loss. James never real seemed to receive adequate help during his tenure in Cleveland, and ultimately bolted to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach.
So, will James end up in Cleveland as a member of the Cavaliers once again? We’ll know soon enough!
