Has LeBron James redeemed himself? The King announced today in a Sports Illustrated article that he will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It looks like most NBA fans are happy with the decision as “Good For LeBron” immediately started trending after the decision was announced.

James said he made the decision because he wanted to do what was right for his family. He grew up in Aron and he wants to raise his kids there. He also said that he wants to be a role model for the young kids in the area and inspire them to make Northwest Ohio a great place to live. LeBron writes: “I always believed that I’d return to Cleveland and finish my career there. I just didn’t know when. After the season, free agency wasn’t even a thought. But I have two boys and my wife, Savannah, is pregnant with a girl. I started thinking about what it would be like to raise my family in my hometown. I looked at other teams, but I wasn’t going to leave Miami for anywhere except Cleveland. The more time passed, the more it felt right. This is what makes me happy.”
Good for LeBron. Miami’s terrible fans were spoiled to have him for four years. Great story seeing the return of the king

Good for Lebron for making it right. I can now cheer for him again. He always said he did wrong but now he’s put actions to those words.

The Decision 2.0 definitely had a different tone than his “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” ESPN extravaganza. LeBron didn’t promise any championships in his article and acknowledge that it was going to be tough to win in Cleveland with a young team.
LeBron writes: “I’m not having a press conference or a party. After this, it’s time to get to work.”
