October 30: LeBron Returns to Cleveland, “I’m coming home.”
LeBron James learned a lot in the four years between “The Decision” to go to Miami and his decision to return to Cleveland. Chief among them was how to make announcements.

Sure, the Cavs would lose the game to the Knicks (…somehow) but the excitement surrounding the beginning of LeBron 3.0 was too much for that to matter.
