Since there is so much hype around Lebron James going home to Cleveland, rejoining the team that drafted him in 2003, we thought we would get in on the action.
If you are under a rock and not familiar, King James resigned with the Cleveland Cavaliers after playing seven years then leaving for the Miami Heat for four, where he won two championships and made four Finals appearances.
"In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given," he wrote in a statement. "Everything is earned. You work for what you have. I’m ready to accept the challenge. I’m coming home."
Residents of Ohio have been overly excited since the announcement and why shouldn’t they be: The Cavs now jump from not making the playoffs to title contender, plus the team and the city will see a huge jump in revenue and growth.
With that said, we wanted to stir the soul a little by offering ten songs to celebrate James' return "home." Check out our list by clicking below, and tell us what songs, if any, you want to add.
