Wow, ok.

LeBron James is going back to Cleveland.

LeBron James announces return to Cleveland Cavaliers - NBA - SI.com

When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio.

Let the aftershocks begin.

I assume Chris Bosh is headed to the Rockets (who will have to make some moves to clear cap space).

What happens with Wade?

What will Carmelo do now?

Is Kevin Love headed to Cleveland via trade now?

An important point here is that Cleveland would have created cap space one way or another.  The Celtics were just the ones fortunate enough (and savvy enough) to take advantage and benefit from it.

What does this mean to the Celtics?  Discuss.
