LeBron's Decision Sets Off Tweets of Congratulations and Wizard of Oz Puns

Jul 11, 2014

Less than an hour after LeBron James announced he would return to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the hashtags #TeamCavs and #TheKingIsBack as well as "Poor Wade" were all trending on Twitter.

The championship-winning player himself chose to announce his decision with an Instagram post, followed by a separate tweet linking to Sports Illustrated's exclusive on his choice.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert as well as fellow athletes and sports commentators also chimed in on the social media platform to offer words of congratulations or simply a well-timed Wizard of Oz pun.

Miami fans were slightly less enthused.

Tickets to see LeBron back at his home court and the Cavs' chance at a championship also became topics of Twitter conversation.

Other Internet onlookers were at the ready to remind Cleveland fans of Gilbert's infamous letter to LeBron (typed in Comic Sans font) after he left the Cavs in 2010, calling him a "coward" and mocking his nickname "King James."

The letter remained on the Cavs' website for four year and was only removed earlier this week. No hard feelings, King James.
