LeBron James' homecoming rally shows it's good to be king

Apparently, you can go home again.

When LeBron James announced last month that he was returning to Cleveland to play for the Cavaliers, all of those fans who burned his jersey four years ago were more than ready to forgive, forget — and welcome him back with open arms.

The 29-year-old NBA star arrived on Friday night to a homecoming rally at the University of Akron, where InfoCision Stadium was filled to the brim with cheering fans.

"I feel like a musician right now," James said to the crowd. "I felt like I was going to sing or rap or do something right now coming out into this crowd."
