LeBron James: I don’t have energy to do [free agency] again

“I don’t plan on going nowhere. I don’t have the energy to do it again.

It just hit me. Sometimes you just have a feeling. Sometimes you just kind of realize what’s going on, what’s happening. It just hit me. That’s why I was able to, through the letter, speak through the heart.”

–LeBron James at his Welcome Home LeBron Celebration at Akron University

This was James’ first public press gathering since his decision to return to Cleveland. It really looks like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders (and, maybe elsewhere on his body). James seems very at peace with this decision and its aftermath. Now we will see if he actually goes through with staying in Cleveland long term considering his contract has an opt-out after just one year.
