Whether you are a casual sports fan or a die-hard NBA-er, the saga of LeBron James returning to Cleveland (his home is actually Akron, OH) has taken over the Internet. If you don’t believe me just take a break from work and browse the headlines on USA Today, CNN, ESPN.com, and even The Huffington Post.
But reading past the headlines to dive into James’ letter from the heart, I was most intrigued by his ultimate goal in returning home. Beyond bringing a championship trophy to his state, LeBron stated he wanted to lead and teach the next generation of Cavs and kids. With maturity, LeBron now understands that many things are fleeting, but being a leader means you identify and train the next group of leaders.
