MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Reaction was mixed among Mount Kisco residents after hearing NBA star LeBron James plans to return next year to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he started his career in the 2003-2004 season.

Mount Kisco resident Chris Anton called it the "best decision."

South Salem resident Alec Farrell likened James' stint away to a kid going off to college. Farrell also said the nation won't hate him as much, a reference to the controversy over remarks at his 2010 press conference about his switch to the Heat.

In a Sports Illustrated piece published Friday, NBA star LeBron James announced that he was returning to Cleveland, where he played previously for the Cavaliers before switching to the Miami Heat in 2010.

In the piece, James (which was told to Lee Jenkins), explained the decision.

"When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio."
