LeBron James’ closest confidant gave some input on what made the King of Akron return home. James’ friend and business partner, Maverick Carter, says LeBron made the decision on his own.
“This was a decision that LeBron made in his heart. We didn’t push him to do it. We don’t push him to do anything. If he asks our opinion or what did we think about the the pros and the cons, we help him think through it. We don’t push him.
... LeBron’s a 29-year-old man with lots of money, got a wife, two kids, one on the way. He makes his own decisions.”
Carter did offer some insight into how thinks may have been different for LeBron had the Heat defeated the Spurs to win a third consecutive title.

“Logic says how could he not,” Carter said. “You’ve got to go for four. But who knows. The decision about Cleveland was bigger than basketball. It was in his heart.”
