There are no hard feelings in Cleveland.
LeBron James rocked the sports world Friday when he announced in a sincere interview with SI.com that he would be “coming home.” The city of Cleveland, understandably so, rejoiced in the streets when the news broke, and the Plain Dealer captured the momentous news with a fantastic front page to welcome LeBron home.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group released the front page of Saturday’s edition of the paper just a couple hours after the NBA superstar made the announcement, using his trademark chalk toss and the closing words of his post on SI.com to create an amazing image.

It’s a stark contrast from the cover the Plain Dealer ran back in 2010 when LeBron announced on national television that he would be leaving Cleveland for Miami.
Plain Dealer broke this out four years ago to the day... "Home" might work just as well as "Gone." http://t.co/mLES7qZhqy—
