He looked so mature.

Totally at peace with himself — and his decision.

LeBron James looked so happy on Aug. 8 at the Welcome Home LeBron Celebration at InfoCision Stadium on the University of Akron campus. He’s home, maybe for good.

The four-time Most Valuable Player made the choice to return to the Cavaliers about a month ago.

AKRON, OHIO — We've known since his announcement what LeBron James' return to Northeastern Ohio would mean for the state. We got our first glimpse Friday of what it will mean for LeBron James.

Speaking at his charity event here before greeting thousands of fans welcoming him home in the University of Akron's football stadium, LeBron marched into a packed press room, turned to several stunned children arrayed on the small stage before him and offered his first public comments since returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers: "What up, what up!"

From that moment on LeBron was as happy, comfortable, funny and, yes, lithe as he's been since I moved to Miami four years ago to cover his first year with the Heat. He was so at ease he quickly said he plans to stay in Cleveland the rest of his career.

LeBron James showed up at Browns practice Thursday to watch his buddy Johnny Manziel work out and told coach Mike Pettine he plans to attend games this season. Too bad he’s not sticking around to play wide receiver.

James and Manziel are the centerpieces that have made Cleveland the hottest sports city in the country this summer. James came back home four years after breaking hearts in Northeast Ohio. That was just two months after the Browns drafted Manziel, who creates more news with his active social life than he does on the field.

Manziel Mania is just what the Browns need. Since they came back into the NFL in 1999, he is the fourth quarterback they have taken in the first round, following Tim Couch, Brady Quinn and Brandon Weeden. The Browns have made the playoffs just once in those 15 years and had a winning record in just two seasons. In the last six years, they’ve won four games three times and five games three times. Pettine is the seventh coach of the new Browns. That’s one just about every two years.
