Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson tweeted a welcome home message to James. Earlier this week, Thompson, James and two other Cavaliers added "LaFamilia" to their Twitter accounts, fueling rumors that James was heading to the Cleveland. It appears those assumptions were right.

Lebron and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert have reportedly "talked out" their friendship after the very public, scathing farewell letter Gilbert penned to Lebron when he left the Cavs for the Miami Heat in 2010. Gilbert seems happier than anyone that the prodigal son of Cleveland is returning.
