LeBron James' decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014 could hinge on Dwyane Wade and Kyrie Irving. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported that as "Dwyane Wade pushes into his 30s, past his prime, Cleveland's Kyrie Irving will emerge as the planet's preeminent point guard in two years." And the thought of teaming with Uncle Drew could have a strong appeal to James. Also pulling James back to Cleveland is his agent and friend, Rich Paul, who Woj says "has been privately telling people for two years of his intrigue with bringing the prodigal son back as the conquering hero in Cleveland." Part of the appeal to James' crew is that the Miami Heat haven't allowed them free reign in South Beach.  The call is ultimately James' to make but his confidants will be pushing him to return home. We've heard these rumors before, and James usually refutes them with statements about how happy he is in Miami. We've yet to hear him say so in a while. Two more championship years in Miami may further endear him to the Florida franchise. That and the franchise's commitment to winning.
