LeBron James and Going Home

"My relationship with northeast Ohio goes beyond basketball. I didn't realize that four years ago. I do now."

That's part of LeBron James' explanation of his decision to go back to Cleveland. It reminds me of the old saying, "You don't know what you've got till you lose it."

That feeling can come to any of us. But not everyone gets the chance to return to the place or the people that constitute "home" for them. James has gotten that chance. Good for him!

(As a lifelong Ohioan, I understand how this place gets under one's skin. I'm very glad to live here.)
