Don't you think LeBron James has written a beautiful story here? He may have exploded Pat Riley's ego in the process, but it seems that everyone outside Miami is stoked about the return of the King.

Cav fans should have no fear though, because LeBron wants to bring a title back to Ohio.

LeBron knows he would be lucky to win as many rings as Michael Jordan, but he is also savvy enough to realize that a title in his home state would mean more than anywhere else. He has healed so many wounds with his return to Cleveland, and this move was about much more than just basketball.

Luol Deng will be the new small forward in South Beach and he could make them an intriguing team in the Eastern Conference. They will not be a contender, but they could definitely cause some trouble in the playoffs.

If LeBron were to ever end the championship drought in Cleveland, then he'd be a legend there for the rest of his lifetime and a statue of him at Quicken Loans Arena would be in order. King James must realize this, but here is the real question. Will the sculpture be passing or dunking?
