LeBron James Pat Riley July 2014

LeBron James, as we all know, made his decision today to leave the Miami Heat and re-join the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Heat president Pat Riley released a statement on the matter regarding the King's departure.

"While I am disappointed by LeBron’s decision to leave Miami, no one can fault another person for wanting to return home. The last four years have been an incredible run for South Florida, HEAT fans, our organization and for all of the players who were a part of it. LeBron is a fantastic leader, athlete, teammate and person, and we are all sorry to see him go.

"Over the last 19 years, since Micky and I teamed together, The Miami HEAT has always been a championship organization; we’ve won multiple championships and competed for many others. Micky, Erik and I remain committed to doing whatever it takes to win and compete for championships for many years to come. We’ve proven that we can do it and we’ll do it again."

Kudos to Riley on remaining professional and being a class act regarding James. This is all definitely much different than what we saw back in 2010.

We'll see what Riley  can do, but so far it looks like he's not yet done with making the Heat a contender. He's already re-signed Chris Bosh and is close to doing the same with Dwyane Wade.

Next season is surely going to be interesting.
