LeBron addresses crowd waiting outside his house: This was for you

BY foxsports • June 20, 2016

Just over 12 hours after the Cavaliers were crowned NBA champs, their plane arrived home in Cleveland and was greeted by a crowd of thousands.

But LeBron James, who resides about 25 minutes outside the city limits in Bath, Ohio, received a more personal welcome home.

After fulfilling his promise to win a championship for Northeast Ohio, hundreds of fans showed their support for the hometown hero by lining the streets outside James' home.

Now a three-time NBA champ and three-time Finals MVP, LeBron has transcended into one of the best players in NBA history. But according to James, he's still "just a kid from Akron, Ohio."
