The kid from Akron, James, had a love-hate relationship with the city of Cleveland, courtesy of him forming a Big 3 with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. However, after winning two titles and Finals MVPs, the King would decide to return home and fulfill his promise.
The former ROTY had one of the grandest homecomings in American Sports history, and the rest is history. The superstar would fulfill his promise of delivering a championship to the city after a drought of over five decades in one of the greatest NBA Finals.

Heading into his 20th season, James currently plays for the LA Lakers, who have been struggling lately. During the recent All-Star Weekend, James had spoken about playing his final season with his eldest son Bronny, no matter where it be.
Kevin Love reflects on LeBron James’ legacy in Cleveland.
James made a series of bold statements during a press conference at this year’s ASG in Cleveland. The four-time champion didn’t hold back, whether it came to be playing with his son Bronny or the door not being closed for his return to Cleveland.
“My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is at, there’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.”
The eighteen-time All-Star also spoke about a potential return to Cleveland.
“The door’s not closed on that. I’m not saying I’m coming back and playing. I don’t know. I don’t know what my future holds. I don’t even know when I’m free.”
During a recent interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, former Cavs teammate Kevin Love addressed the rumors surrounding James’ return to Cleveland.
“I feel like it’ll even be cool if it’s one of those things like a one-game type of thing, said K-Love. Obviously, I know he wants to have a Kobe-type exit where he scores 60 and does his thing.
“He’ll have that statue. I can’t wait till that goes up, I’ll be there.”

Having played four seasons with the King in Cleveland, which included winning the iconic 2016 championship, Love knows the connection James shares with the city.
James ending his career with Bronny in Cleveland would be the ideal farewell for the King, bidding adieu to one of the greatest NBA careers.
