Description

The inside story of LeBron James' 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.

Critiques

"I've always admired Brian's acumen and his seasoned perspective. This story with Dave McMenamin of LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers' championship run is captivating and filled with spectacular detail." (Tracy McGrady, seven-time NBA All-Star)
"Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin don't just cover the NBA. They live it. And in Return of the King, their storytelling has never been better. From the decision-making process in the Cavaliers' front office which led to LeBron James' return, to the assembly of a championship roster, to the players-only email from GM David Griffin with the Cavs down 3-1 in the NBA Finals, to the candid exchanges between LeBron and Tyronn Lue, there is nothing left uncovered. Man, what a compelling read!" (Ernie Johnson, studio host of TNT's Inside the NBA)
"On the court and off, the LeBron James journey back to Cleveland and back to a championship is one of the most intriguing stories in NBA history. Brian and Dave do a masterful job of adding context, details, and behind-the-scenes anecdotes to the signing, the season, and the series. Return of the King is a great way to remember all that led up to the Finals and the greatest comeback." (Mike Tirico, NBC Sports)

Waste of Time

Summarizing all of the games from Lebron's two years back in Cleveland is certainly not anything to be proud of. I thought this book would give more insights into the behind the scenes and it certainly did not. This is not worth wasting your time on and there are a whole list of books that should be read before this is even considered.

A book that tries to sound like "Jordan Rules"

The author Chronicles the year of the cavs championship season, 2015. It's obvious that the author was influenced by "Jordan Rules." The author did a pretty good job. I can't imagine how many spies one must have to put these books together. If you like NBA bball, get the book. youll enjoy it. However, the book is not as pleasurable and profound as Jordan rules. Some people are just better writers.

Cleveland against the world!

I loved reliving this great moment for Cleveland! Lebron is an everyday hero around here and Brian did a great job capturing that message.

Great story!

As a huge Lebron fan I had to read it. I think it was well written by its authors and the behind the scenes details were incredible! There were things that put me at odds with James, but ultimately this tells the story of a man's triumph over several evils, major or minor. Very happy that I listened and I'm very certain that I'm going to purchase the hard copy.

Very Little New Insight

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Meh

Any additional comments?

This book is pretty much a summary of reports already filed on ESPN and ESPN.com. I kept up with the Cavs all year and I hoped to learn some new inside stories. There were few new insights. A complete and thorough retelling of what happened but if you already kept up with the team you will learn very little new information.

Great listen

Love the storyline, and the many perspectives. Brian does a good job still acknowledging some of Lebron's faults in the process well telling the story that has built Lebron's legacy.

A nice review

That was an awesome book. The author goes into great depth about Lebron without being yellow at all. I recommend. The narration is really nice.
