When LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers, they turned on him. It seemed safe to say that he’d rarely step foot in Cleveland again, let alone grace a Cavaliers jersey again, but after many hints during the last 12 months, it’s starting to seem a real possibility that LeBron could head back to Cleveland and partner up with his friend Kyrie Irving.
James can opt out in the summer of 2014, and he hasn’t ruled out a return to Cleveland. He has also talked about his close friendships with the Cavaliers’ duo Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, who would be more than happy to welcome their hero to lead their team.
It’s safe to say there’s unfinished business in Cleveland and if he was to win there, he would find forgiveness and see his elite reputation grow more than many would imagine. Irving and James linked up to push the East to victory over the West in the recent 2014 All-Star game. Irving was the MVP and LeBron told the media “Kyrie’s special … he’s one of the best point guards that we have in our league today.”
As James said last time around, he needed help, but this time he would have help in abundance in Irving. The two would make an unstoppable pairing. As the days pass, it seems more likely he could return to Cleveland, but the key factor would indeed be Irving. He and James are two of the league’s best players, and the next chapter is up to them.
