When LeBron James left the Miami Heat to make his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers over the summer, most Heat fans – yes, they are out there –  understood the decision and appreciated the two championships James brought to the franchise.

After having missed the playoffs for the past four-straight seasons—ever since four-time NBA MVP LeBron James left home for the warm beaches of Miami to join Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and the Heat, and after surprisingly good luck in the past two NBA draft lotteries gifted the Cleveland Cavaliers with back-to-back top-overall picks, there may have been little hope for any monumental improvement entering the summer of 2014.

KLove Players' Tribune Feature

The Cleveland Cavaliers made some noise over the summer. Not only did LeBron James make his return home, but he brought plenty of proven veterans with him.

The proposed trade to send Kevin Love to Cleveland in exchange for the top overall pick in this year’s draft, Andrew Wiggins, could not be completed when the news broke about the parts and places
