LeBron James was in the middle of an epic summer of basketball.
James left Cleveland for Miami on June 23, 2018 and returned on June 30, 2018.
He averaged 20.4 points, 8.7 assists and 3.1 steals per game in the NBA during the summer.
James also returned to the NBA this season, leading the Miami Heat to a 50-32 record and a first-round NBA Playoffs matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
James is one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and his return will be welcomed by many in the basketball community.
“This is going to be a special experience for my family, but also for everyone who has been supporting me and my family for so long,” James said in a statement.
“It’s something that I want to be able to do with my family.”
James’ return will not only bring an end to a year that has been one of his most difficult, but it will also serve as a way to celebrate the many achievements that he and his family have achieved over the past few decades.
James has been the NBA’s most prolific scorer in the past several years, leading all players with 17.5 points per game, and he is currently tied for the league lead with 9.5 steals per contest.
James and his wife, Gail, have three sons and three daughters.
The James family will be celebrating James’ first-ever homecoming in Miami on July 6, 2018, when the Miami HEAT host the Detroit Pistons.
The Miami HEATS will be making the trip to the Miami Beach Convention Center to face the Detroit Pistons in what is a homecoming match-up for the franchise that has lost all four of its championships since James left the NBA in 2021.
Miami HEAT forward Alex Len was named Miami HEAP Player of the Year.
He scored a season-high 26 points against the Pistons on Thursday.
James, who is one year younger than his son, said he hopes his family’s return to Miami will help them make it in the world of entertainment and entertainment industry.
“I’ve never been to Miami before, so I’m excited to be back,” James told reporters on Thursday during a visit to the HEAT’s practice facility.
“I’ve always wanted to play basketball, so when I can go to the city that has a lot of entertainment, a lot more entertainment, that’s something I’m looking forward to.”
James has been a part of the HEATS’ success, leading Miami in scoring (27.5 ppg) and assists (6.5 apg) in the last four seasons.
He is second on the HEAP in scoring with 20.1 points per contest and is fifth in assists (4.8 apg).
James is currently on pace to become the first player in NBA history to average 20.5 per game for 10 consecutive seasons, and the HEAC will celebrate his arrival with a parade in Miami.
The parade is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Thursday and will continue through the end of the day.
