LeBron James’ shocking announcement that he would return to Cleveland has turned into a story that transcends sports. Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson identified James as a rare example of an athlete who embraced social responsibility. “I have joy in my heart today because LeBron returned to Cleveland,” explained Jackson. “He wants to lift up Northeast Ohio — what a noble ambition. That’s a level of leadership that’s rare.” Indeed it is.

He’s been known as the best player in the NBA since around 2008. But with the Heat, he silenced the critics who said he couldn’t win rings. Two NBA titles and four finals appearances in four seasons will do that for a man’s reputation. Indeed, James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh ran roughshod over the league in four years.
