LeBron James’ return home to Cleveland continues to bring with it a hero’s welcome.

And the former Miami Heat player had some great news for Cavs fans last night when making his first public appearance since the move was announced in July.

Speaking in front of over 30,000 fans in his native Akron, Ohio, the superstar declared that he plans on finishing his NBA career with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With LeBron’s new deal with the franchise only running until 2016 free agency some had feared he would jump ship if success wasn’t quick to arrive.

But James was adamant he had no plans to play for anyone else in the future – citing fatigue with the whole free agency process.

After being criticised heavily for his original decision to leave the Cavs for Miami back in 2010 it's no surprise that James isn't looking to cause another media stir.

Back in 2010 LeBron chose to announce his decision to leave Cleveland, the franchise he had been with since entering the NBA, with a hugely publicized and anticiapted televised appearance.

Cavs fans reacted angrily to the news with many burning his no.23 jersey following James exit to the Miami Heat.

This offseason however, LeBron James chose to pen an open letter explaining his decision to 'return home' - a move that garnered far more respect amongst the NBA community.

With his latest comments however it looks like we won't be needing to speculate on his future any more.
