LeBron James Won't Rule Out Return To Cavaliers

Friday February 17th, 2012

Miami Heat star LeBron James says he will not rule out a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to ESPN.

"I had a lot of fun times (in Cleveland). You can't predict the future. Hopefully you continue to stay healthy. I'm here as a Miami player and I'm happy where I am now but I don't rule that out in any sense. If I decide to come back, hopefully fans will accept me." James told reporters.

James, under contract for two more season with an option for two more with the Heat, was heavily scrutinized by Cleveland fans and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert for announcing he would be leaving the team to play with a true championship contender in the Miami Heat through his “Decision” special on ESPN.  Ever since his announced departure in July of 2010, James has been greeted with heavy boos from the Cavaliers fans that once adored him. James will return to Cleveland tomorrow where he and the Heat (23-7) will play the Cavaliers (11-16).
