Publisher Description

In this New York Times bestseller, get the inside scoop into LeBron James's return -- and ultimate triumph -- in Cleveland.
What really happened when LeBron James stunned the NBA by leaving a potential dynasty in Miami to come home to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers? How did the Cavs use secret meetings to put together the deal to add star Kevin Love? Who really made the controversial decision to fire coach David Blatt when the team was in first place? Where did the greatest comeback in NBA history truly begin-and end?

Return of the King takes you onto the private planes, inside the locker-room conversations, and into the middle of the intense huddles where one of the greatest stories in basketball history took place, resulting in the Cavs winning the 2016 NBA title after trailing the Golden State Warriors three games to one.

You'll hear from all the characters involved: the players, the executives, the agents, and the owners as they reveal stories never before told. Get the background on all the controversies, the rivalries, and the bad blood from two reporters who were there for every day, plot twist, and social media snafu as they take you through the fascinating ride that culminated in a heart-stopping Game Seven.

A great book

Brian and Dave describe those moments in the same detail that my brain remembers them. The Shot, the Block, and the Stop are plays I’ll never ever forget. Loved this book. The halftime scene with Ty Lue and LeBron is insane. I’m a die hard NBA fan that never knew about that interaction, and I’m forever thankful they took the time to put those memories into this book for us to get a glimpse of the behind the scenes view. They painted a vivid picture of both years battling the Warriors. I think it made me feel a bit sorry for Coach Blatt, because I’m sure he believes he could’ve got them that finals win as well.

Good book

Here's hoping to see an NBA Finals rubber match this year between the Cavs and Warriors...the mutual dislike makes for a very intriguing matchup
