LeBron James not ruling out return to Cavs
There was some speculation last month that LeBron James could one day return to the Cavs. Given the inconsiderate way LeBron left Cleveland, many people were outraged by the report. Well get ready Cleveland, because LeBron says he would be open to playing for the Cavs again.
“I think it would be great, it would be fun to play in front of these fans again,” James said after the Heat’s practice Thursday in Cleveland.
“I had a lot of fun times in my seven years here. You can’t predict the future. Hopefully I continue to stay healthy. I’m here as a Miami Heat player and I’m happy where I’m at now. But I don’t rule that out in no sense. If I decided to come back, hopefully the fans will accept me.”
LeBron is still signed for two more years by Miami and he has options for another two. He would still be young enough to continue playing five years from now, so a return to Cleveland could be possible. By then I think Cavs fans would be willing to give him a chance. LeBron says he thinks he could eventually reconcile with Dan Gilbert. The question is if the Cavs owner feels the same.
