The Miami Heat's front-office held their composure once LeBron James made his decision to return home to the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday (July 11). Now, his move has prompted a response from the Heat's president, Pat Riley.
"While I am disappointed by LeBron's decision to leave Miami, no one can fault another person for wanting to return home. The last four years have been an incredible run for South Florida, HEAT fans, our organization and for all of the players who were a part of it. LeBron is a fantastic leader, athlete, teammate and person, and we are all sorry to see him go."
