LeBron James is going home to the Cleveland Cavaliers. After weeks of speculation the two-time champion and 10-time all-star will return to the team that drafted him back in 2003.

James, who left the Cavilers during free agency back in 2010 to join the Miami Heat with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, wrote a letter to Sport Illustrated expressing his desire to go home.

"I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball," said James. "I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now."

James also expressed his gratitude to the Heat organization and his close friends Wade and Bosh while proclaiming his anxiousness to get with his new teammates.

"I get a thrill out of bringing a group together and helping them reach a place they didn't know they could go. I see myself as a mentor now and I'm excited to lead some of these talented young guys," James said. "I think I can help Kyrie Irving become one of the best point guards in our league. I think I can help elevate Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters. And I canÕt wait to reunite with Anderson Varejao, one of my favorite teammates."

James ended the letter by simply saying, "In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have. I'm ready to accept the challenge. I'm coming home."
