    Four years after LeBron James severed ties and broke hearts in Cleveland, three words on his Instagram account and at Sports Illustrated signaled the return of the prodigal son to the Cavaliers.

He still calls Ohio home. It’s obviously not an easy decision, and the ramifications of what he’s about to say will have a massive impact on the Heat and the Cavaliers.
