LeBron James, aka The Kid From Akron, aka The King, aka King James, aka The Savior is headed home to Cleveland. On Friday, after four years of speculation (it felt that long, no?), James decided to take his talents to The Forest City and rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers. Twitter has been waiting for this decision with bated breath, so let’s check out some of the top reactions.
So this is the way the world ends: not with a bang, but with LeBron and Johnny Football in the same city.

Cavs fans can now go deep into their closets & pull out their LeBron jerseys. It’s not like they burned them or anything. #LeBronToCleveland

Again, I’ll say: Don’t expect any Miami fans to have the initiative to go burn a LeBron jersey.
