Extra! Extra! LeBron Returning to Cleveland

*This essay from LeBron -- breaking the news, mind you -- was wonderful. "Pitch perfect" comes to mind.

*"I’m not promising a championship." Thank you. It's not a guarantee, but he'll try. To wit...

*"My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio."

Think about that for a second, because it's absolutely spot-on: In LeBron's case, the legacy isn't "more rings than Jordan." It's "rings where they haven't been in forever." Good for him.

*Aside from the fact that the Cavs stand in the way of my Wizards winning the East, it is very easy to root for LeBron and root for a fascinating way this challenge plays itself out.

*And if it inspires Kevin Durant to return to his own hometown in two years to try to bring home a championship, all the better.
