LeBron James is the face of the NBA, and the national media can not get enough of him. Prior to LeBron announcing that he would be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, everyone related to the NBA was waiting on pins and needles to hear what “The King” had decided.
It is not often that one player could essentially stop all of a league’s activities, but LeBron basically did just that as no major signings were done until James made his decision.
Of course, LeBron’s decision not only affects the Cavaliers and the Miami Heat, but it affects every single team in the NBA as the power structure of the league shifts when LeBron switches teams.
LeBron, who is in Brazil for today’s World Cup final between Argentina and Germany, recently sat down for his first interview since his announcement that he would be returning to Cleveland.
In the interview, LeBron is asked about his excitement in returning to Cleveland, and he once again makes mention of how excited he is to reunite with his former teammate Anderson Varejao. LeBron also gives his thoughts on the World Cup final match later today.
Check out LeBron’s first interview in the video below.
