Indianapolis, IN, United States (NewsBahn) – Sir Charles Barkley told ESPN he wants Miami Heat superstar LeBron James to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he started his career.
LeBron led the Cavs to an NBA Finals, but made ‘The Decision’ to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
“I’ve always thought he was going to go back to Cleveland,” Barkley said. “Nobody dislikes LeBron. I think LeBron made a huge mistake with that ‘Decision’ crap. He’s come back and since admitted that. That’s the only thing people hold against LeBron.
“He’s a great player, a great person. I hope he goes back to Cleveland. Those fans in Miami are not real fans, those fans in Cleveland are real fans. I’ve always hoped he would go back to Cleveland. That would be a great way to finish his career.”
LeBron is currently shooting for a third straight championship with the Heat. He has led the team in the Eastern Conference finals vs. the Pacers with the Pacers and Heat tied at 1-1 in a best-of-seven series.
