Cleveland Cavaliers fans are in heaven today with the news the LeBron James is coming home. There were plenty of reasons behind the King’s homecoming party, but the question now becomes: Can LeBron finally deliver a championship to his hometown? The Eastern Conference is a barren wasteland, but adding LeBron to a young Cavaliers roster doesn’t necessarily make them title favorites overnight.
The Indiana Pacers are one Lance Stephenson signing away from being Eastern favorites. The Chicago Bulls are one Carmelo Anthony signing away from being title contenders.
