NBA superstar LeBron James will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he announced today via an article on Sports Illustrated.



The news was actually first reported Wednesday by independent basketball writer Chris Sheridan on his website Sheridan Hoops, but other outlets couldn't confirm Sheridan's report that James was set to sign with Cleveland. Now it's official.
