CLEVELAND, Ohio– You know what they say about a promise: Never make one you can’t keep. LeBron James kept his promise, and Cavs fans in Northeast Ohio couldn’t be more ecstatic.

The star player, who was named Finals MVP after breaking the Cleveland curse and bringing home a championship, made that promise two years ago when he announced he was returning home. “My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now,” James said in 2014.

He revealed the huge news through a letter in Sports Illustrated and now he’s featured on the cover of SI with the title, “The Promise Keeper.”
