Well, maybe the summer of 2016 won't be ruled by the courtship of LeBron James by NBA teams. The NBA season ended just three days ago but speculation has already been abound about LeBron going to play in Los Angeles, or even returning to Miami.

But maybe we can already put that to rest:

LeBron tells Cleveland.com that he will return to Cleveland to defend the Cavs' first NBA title.


"I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates," James told cleveland.com, moments before he boarded a float at The Q for the Cavs' championship parade through downtown Cleveland. "Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I'm happy. I've got no plans to go nowhere at this point."

James also added that this is the happiest he's been in his life. It just feels right for LeBron to return to Cleveland. He'll opt out of his contract so he can sign a new deal (he can sign as early as July 6).
