LeBron James is looking to maintain a great relationship with his neighbourhood in Cleveland as the NBA superstar apologises for the recent commotion he caused by delivering cupcakes to everyone.

James wants to make sure he's in the good graces of the people back in Ohio after his return to the Cavaliers and the King really made a sweet apology.

On Tuesday night, James sent a team of his from the Fairlawn, Ohio bakery round to his neighbourhood in order to deliver the apology, he wanted to say sorry for the traffic jams his return had caused.

With the treats came a card, it read: "Dear friends, we know things have been hectic in our neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos. We are so thankful to live in this wonderful community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you."

A fantastic gesture from one of the most genuine and down to earth superstars the NBA could ask for.

The cupcakes were actually devised for James' foundation, the card notes the two different types of treats, included were boxes that contained six "Just A Kid From Akron Cherry Cola" cupcakes and six "Homecourt Chocolate Chunk" cupcakes.

James continues to inspire many kids from his area and all across Cleveland, the impact of his return can't really be measured but it is suspected that the Ohio area will receive a monetary boom of around $500 million thanks to James 'going home'.

Dale Galehouse is a local sophomore from LeBron's area, his childhood home is only a few blocks away from the James household, he commented on the gesture: ""It was really hectic around here, but it's really nice for LeBron to do something like this."

James bought the property on the estate in Bath Township back in 2003 when he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers, his went on to build a 30,000 foot square mansion on the land.

James is currently in China at the present time and is yet to meet back up with the franchise he recently joined through free agency, with the Cavaliers putting together a roster centered around the small forward, the possibility of challenging for an NBA title is once again realistic in Cleveland.
