A short time ago, just before 12:30 p.m. Eastern time, LeBron James finally made the announcement that we've all been waiting for for the last 10 days. James—who spent the last four years playing with the Miami Heat—revealed that he will be taking his talents back to Cleveland this fall to play for the Cavaliers. And unlike back in 2010, when he turned his free agency "decision" into a spectacle by holding a TV special called The Decision on ESPN, LeBron's announcement today was decidedly low-key. He didn't hold a press conference or sit down for a televised interview. Instead, he revealed his 2014 decision through a brief, albeit powerful, Sports Illustrated article.
The reaction to it was anything but low-key, though. From Heat fans who were understandably upset about LeBron's decision to Cavaliers fans who went wild on social media, the reaction to LeBron's announcement has been, in a word, pandemonium.
