After days of keeping everyone on the edge of their seats, LeBron James announced Friday morning he was taking his talents back to Ohio.
The four-time MVP left the Miami Heat to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers and Twitter reactions to the big basketball shake-up are as varied and as melodramatic as they come.

Cavaliers fans — who famously burned James’ jersey four years ago — are rejoicing, while Heat fans — who witnessed him lead their team to four straight NBA Finals — are distraught.
But here’s what the celebrities had to say:

Lebron is officially going back to Cleveland. I wonder where he’ll go for his next contract? Too early?
SI essay was great. I love Lebrons decision and I LOVE how he handled it. The best thing for his legacy is bringing a title to Cleveland.
What about all the LeBron haters in Cleveland? Do you think they will eat their words? And flip the script ? LOL
