LeBron James ends speculation by announcing return to Cavs


After bringing an NBA championship to Cleveland, just as he promised, LeBron James has confirmed he will stay with the team.

James has a one-year, $24million player's option on the table, which he will in all likelihood decline in order to get an upgraded salary from the team.

But the 31-year-old says he has no intention of going anywhere else this offseason, despite speculation this week that he could sign with the Los Angeles Lakers or Miami Heat.

"I love it here. I love being here. I love my team-mates," he told Cleveland.com during the team's Finals-winning victory parade.

"Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I'm happy. I've got no plans to go nowhere at this point."

James was unanimously voted MVP as the Cavs won a first NBA championship in franchise history by beating the Golden State Warriors in the final match-up of the seven-game series on Sunday.
