Kansas City Chiefs Players React To LeBron James Returning To Cleveland

You may or may not have heard by now LeBron James decided this afternoon to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers after four years playing for the Miami Heat. James announced the decision via an essay on Sports Illustrated.

There are not a lot of comparisons for the Chiefs in terms of what the equivalent of such news would be. I suppose the return of Tony Gonzalez would be closest, assuming he was 29 years old and not 38 years old. Even then, while Gonzalez is arguably the greatest tight end of all-time, Gonzalez is not in the discussion of being one of the greatest athletes of all-time the way LeBron is. So when news like this drops it transcends sports as a whole and not just the game of basketball.

Plus, it makes Patrick Allen a little happier.

At any rate, Patrick isn’t the only one with some thoughts about LeBron signing back with the Cavs. Some Chiefs players took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the move. Here are a few selections.

    How did Wiggins get ever so lucky?

  • berttheclock

    Is Cleveland really big enough for both LeBron and Mr Football?

    • unclejesse40

      That is exactly the thought I had when I heard this.

  • Alex Rodman

    I like the heat!

    And i ain’t no cricket. #Chirp

  • Stacy D. Smith

    He can finally earn his career legacy now that he won’t have Wade to lean on. That team is loaded with young talent. Uncle Drew’s not even 23 yet and he’s already been to the All-Star Game twice. You also have four other former Top 5 picks. This was a monster acquisition for the Cavs (for the second time).

    • Keane Santos

      No offense but he didnt “lean” on wade, maybe with the exception of the first year. Lebron has been a great leader and has helped most of his teammates develop, i do think maybe wade has a slight rebirth along with bosh.
      Also Irving is a better player today than Wade

      • Stacy D. Smith

        How many times did Wade bail the Heat out in fourth quarters where James wilted? I didn’t see James become the true leader of that team until the year of their last championship run. He played well throughout the postseason and came up big at crucial times.

        Irving may be slightly better than Wade at this point, but he’s also ten years younger. He’s definitely ascending though. That’s a really good young basketball player.

    Loved travis kelces second tweet

  • Roger Mihalko

    Not really a fan of James or his ego. If Cleveland, wants him back, good for them. I wish Kansas City had an NBA franchise again, that would be news.

  • Lyle Graversen

    As a fan of a Midwest city that has seen its share of losing, I’m happy for Cleveland and happier for my twitter timeline and am ready for the talk to swing back to the quickly approaching NFL season.

  • Olivier

    This is the ultimate proof this guy is fluke : jolting Cleveland for titles and money when he frustrated, and now his ass has been handed to him in the last finals, he jolts Miami. Work your ass off to gain what you wish fr like Jordan dis with the Bulls. What will happen in 3 years when Spurs and or Thunders feast on him provided The Cavs go to the final?

    • ben

      Get a life buddy

  • e_racer

    What? I thought LeBron was going to play TE for the Chiefs? I’m speechless.

  • Joy sailis

    I’m truly happy he went back. I hope he has much success there

  • berttheclock

    At first I thought Wiggins was lucky, however, now, that the word is Love may join them, it looks as though Wiggins will end up being odd man out and will be traded.
