LeBron James made his decision after putting most of the world on hold including the NBA and explains why he decided to return to the Cavs in an exclusive interview with Sports Illustrated columnist Lee Jenkins. “I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can.” James continues, “My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.”
As for the infamous Dan Gilbert letter that was believed to have been reason enough for him not to return, James says it was tough for him and his family but emphasizes saying he has met with Gilbert and they have hashed everything out.
James ends his interview saying he realizes the difference he can make in Miami but feels he can make a bigger difference in Ohio.
