CLEVELAND– Like it or not, he’s back. But is he coming back for good in the summer of 2014?

A lot has changed in the three years since LeBron James declared that he was taking his talents to South Beach.

He returns to Cleveland for the first time as an NBA Champion.  So what has that done for LeBron’s perception in Cleveland?

“I have no idea,” says James. “I will hope that I have moved on and they have some really good pieces here too and they are trying to move on as well.”

LeBron is not sure what kind of reception he will get from fans on Wednesday night but he does know it won’t compare to the reception he got on that first trip back to Cleveland in 2010.

“It can’t get any worse than year one, December 2, 2010, can’t get no worse than that so I’ll be alright,” said James.

LeBron admits he hasn’t paid much attention to the Cavs and what kind of franchise they are building. He does know they have a very important key in building a winning team.

“I don’t think anyone has to sit here right now and talk about how great Kyrie is,” he said. “He is unbelievable; a center piece to build your team around you know and we’ll see what happens.”

LeBron and his Miami Heat teammates ride a 23-game winning streak into Wednesday’s game against the Cavs.  They are 10 wins shy of tying the NBA record.

“We’re going at every game as its own. If it happens throughout the course of us winning games than it would be an unbelievable accomplishment but we are not trying to catch it and say this is our goal,” James said.

Many believe it will be a David vs. Goliath type game at the “Q” when Miami takes on Cleveland, especially without Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters in the line-up.

“We just played a team without Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo and we saw how that game went,” James said. “We don’t take no team lightly.”
