LeBron James Talks Returning to Cleveland After Cavs Owner Bashed Him

James first recalled Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert's infamous post-Decision letter, in which Gilbert sharply James for walking away from Cleveland.

"Me going back is more of this", James said, raising his hand high.

For now, it appears James and Gilbert are fine, but at the time, the letter really made an impact on him.

"For me personally, when I chose to go back to Cleveland, I had to decide like- because our owner at the time when I left made a decision to put out this [expletive] article that we all know about where he completely liked, based me and disrespected, not only me, as an individual, but also my name. It's my wife, it's my kids, my grandfather, my mother - so many more people". "My mother. So many more people".

"My mama and my wife was like f-- that, I ain't with that", James said. "Even my wife was like, my momma and my wife was like, 'I'm not with that.' My mom was definitely like, 'We ain't going back'". "We ain't going back".

But James ultimately says his return was about "the bigger picture" and wanted to be an inspiration to the people of The Land, despite his family's wishes.

"I didn't like when KD went out there. cause it just messed up the whole competitive balance, only one team can compete with them. She's like, I'm staying in Miami".

I'm here to offer a ranking, 30 to 1, of the likelihood LeBron James would choose that franchise for his final (or close to it) significant National Basketball Association contract.

Only hours away from Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, sixth man Andre Iguodala offered a tease to a potential weakness that his Golden State Warriors still have. Gilbert should just be happy James has a strong connection with the state of Ohio.
