LeBron James Returning to Cleveland Cavaliers?

Let Yahoo Sports tell it and LeBron James is seriously considering returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The website is reporting that James’s agent and childhood friend, Rich Paul, has confided in people back in Ohio that King James’s mission is to return to Cleveland after exiting the team in 2010 and breaking the city’s heart. There’s even a report about the Cavs are hoping to move Jarrett Jack in attempt to free the cap space necessary to offer James a maximum contract. Though LeBron would probably become the best example of an athlete returning to a team he once played for, he certainly wouldn’t be the first.
