Gallery: The Return of the King

With LeBron James set to return to the city he began his NBA career for the first time as a visiting player on Thursday, we look back on the seven seasons he spent as a Cavalier.

While many will (accurately) point out that the true moment LeBron James went from hero to villain was July 8, 2010, it wasn't just 'The Decision' that helped this change in identity in Cleveland, and around the world.

No, you have to look back on the seven seasons of highs and lows — when James first became Cleveland's favourite son, all the way up to that one-hour TV special that cemented his fall from the city's collective grace to become the most despised man in town.

LeBron, this is your life as a Cavalier.
