LeBron James will return for the 2016-2017 season

The streets of Cleveland are literally clogged with fans, bringing the 2016 NBA World Championship parade to a screeching halt. While it's a nightmare for Cleveland police trying to clear the way, extending this celebration as long as possible doesn't bother me in the least.

While we're waiting, big news leaked out of the pre-parade wait, as the Cavs players were waiting to start along their journey.

According to Joe Vardon, LeBron James isn't going anywhere:
This, after Stephen A. Smith rolled this wonderful tidbit out:

What I’m hearing is this, and I’ll preface it by saying that LeBron’s camp has emphatically said that there is no truth to this whatsoever. Fair enough. I have been hearing for months—and I heard it again when I went to Miami for Game 6 against the Raptors—that if LeBron were to win the championship in Cleveland, he will have fulfilled his promise to the people in Cleveland, and he will consider going back to South Beach. He’s bought a house in L.A., too, so you got folks out there thinking there’s a possibility that the Lakers could be in his future. I don’t know about all of that, but I do know what I’ve been hearing. 
Now, obviously, that’s not etched in stone, because first of all, he’s got to win and chances are [the Cavaliers] may not win [this season]. He won’t leave if he doesn’t win because he’s about fulfilling his promise. He knows how badly that will look if he ends up not winning and still deciding to depart. But if he were to win the championship and have fulfilled his promise, then he would consider going back to South Beach. And what I said specifically is, again, not only has his camp denied it and the people close to him categorically and emphatically denied it, but my point was that was what I was hearing from folks in Miami. So whether it’s true or not, they believe that if LeBron wins the championship, they have a legitimate shot at getting him to come back to the Miami Heat.
Now, you have to note the last part of that..."they have a legitimate shot at getting him to come back to the Miami Heat." This, coming after the revelation that LeBron used Miami as motivation to win this title in Cleveland, after many in the organization said he was making the "worst decision of his career."

Well done Stephen A. Smith. You obviously have both bad contacts, as well as asinine information.

Then, of course, there's Adrian Wojnarowski at the Vertical, who speculated the same thing. 

Love the Click bait...I mean...I clicked.

LeBron is back, and if they keep winning, and they could, there's no reason to think that's ever going to change.
