In 2010, LeBron James made a choice that hurt not only his team, but a state as a whole. LeBron chose to sign with the Miami Heat and leave the Cleveland Cavaliers. The whole state of Ohio felt betrayed thinking that LeBron had taken the easy way out to winning a championship.
Now that four years have passed, and LeBron has decided to come back to Cleveland; he wont be alone this time. He will also have rising star Kyrie Irving and established player Kevin Love. Cleveland fans are enthusiastic about the future of their team.
This trio could bring the much anticipated championship to Cleveland.
LeBron James has already established himself as the best player in the league. James was drafted by the Cav’s immediately following high school. From that point the Cavaliers knew that they had someone that could win them the championship. James, however, never won the championship. Then, James left for the Miami Heat, where he finally won the rings he had been striving for.
Next, the Cavaliers acquired Kyrie Irving. Irving was the number one draft pick in 2011 and since then has proven to be one of the top point guards currently in the NBA. He is a two time All-Star; He won “rookie of the year” in the 2011-2012 season, and the 2014 NBA All-Star game MVP.
Finally the Cav’s Obtained power forward/center Kevin Love. Kevin Love was drafted in the first round of the 2008 NBA drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Love was Minnesota’s star player, leading them to great seasons but never enough success to make the playoffs. The summer of 2014, when LeBron was making his choice between Miami and Cleveland, Love released a statement saying that if LeBron would go back to Cleveland, he would sign with Cleveland as well. Though it is not known if this swayed LeBron’s decision to go back to Cleveland, many believe that it did.
Now, with these three top players in the NBA on the same team, Cleveland could have a successful season and possibly win a championship.
