The King is Coming Home: The Cavaliers Rebuild

Akron, Ohio, native LeBron James announced recently that he will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers next season. He was selected as the number one pick in the 2003 NBA draft by the Cavs out of St. Vincent-St. Mary’s High school. In just 4 years, he led Cleveland to the NBA finals for the first time ever. Ironically, they lost to the San Antonio Spurs, which beat the Miami Heat in this year’s championship. This new deal is reportedly for 2 years at $42.1 million.  

The Fallout in 2010

There was a tremendous fall out when Cleveland’s native son left the Cavs to join superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. This devastated a city of diehard sports fans that had spent years watching the disappointing Cavs, Browns and Indians. When LeBron left in 2010, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert released a letter on the team’s webpage calling his departure to Miami “heartless and callous.” The letter has remained there for the past 4 seasons, but was recently removed when there were rumors that LeBron might return.

Actors Who Had Big Comebacks

Success for actors can often be short-lived. They never know how long their stardom will last, or when it will end. Some leave the stage never to be heard from again, while others defy the odds and make a comeback to experience a second round of success. Some of them are even better known the second time around.
