“I’m re-signing back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, man, my hometown team, and I (couldn’t) be more excited with this opportunity once again man, to defend our crown, defend our title,” James said. “We all know last year was magical, inspiring, all the words you can come up with man. It was an unbelievable season. I just can’t wait to get the group back together man, the team, the franchise, and more importantly get everybody together.”
