After leaving Cleveland in 2010 for Miami, there was a lot of backlash for James, including a scathing letter from Cavs’ owner Dan Gilbert. In his four season with Miami, James won a pair of NBA titles, but it was clear that Miami’s roster was getting older.

Cleveland has had the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft three of the last four years and had the money to bring James back to go along with a young and talented roster. James buried the hatchet with Gilbert and announced in an essay to Sports Illustrated that he wanted to return home to bring a title to Cleveland.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Cleveland has immediately jumped up to the favorite to win the NBA title, as it has 4/1 odds to win. San Antonio comes in with 5/1 odds while Miami falls to 50/1.
