New York: LeBron James announced Friday that he will rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers next season, leaving Miami after sparking the Heat to two NBA titles for the hometown club he spurned in 2010.

James, who grew up just south of Cleveland in Akron, ended a first-person essay told to Sports Illustrated and published on the magazine`s website with the words "I`m coming home."

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player confirmed the article with a Twitter posting of the splash page of the article, him displaying an NBA championship ring with the words "I`m coming home."
