LeBron James is returning to ... Cleveland.

In a dramatic move announced Friday via an interview with Sports Illustrated, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the sweepstakes for the biggest free agent on the market and best player in the world. A member of James' team confirmed the decision to USA TODAY Sports.

What once seemed inconceivable is now a reality. LeBron James is a Cavalier again.

Let that sink in.

LeBron James is a Cavalier again.

"When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission," James told SI. "I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn't had that feeling in a long, long, long time. 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."
