LeBron James leaves Heat for Cavaliers

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

LeBron James, the biggest name in basketball since Michael Jordan, is leaving the Miami Heat to rejoin his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers in Ohio. James helped lead the Heat to two championship titles, starting with their win in 2012, and then again in 2013 on the heels of a 27-game winning streak, which was the second longest in league history. Cleveland is thrilled to have “King James” returning to his throne, as citizens rushed out into the streets to cheer, honked their cars, and began throwing welcome back parties. See, in 2003, James had been drafted by the Cavaliers as the first pick after graduating from high school, and he led them to the franchise’s first Finals in 2007. Will he now help them win their first championship ever?
