LeBron James Announces Cleveland Return Via Sports Illustrated

This is what you call one hell of a get. Everyone in the sporting world — and many others outside of it — was awaiting word on where LeBron James would play next season, and Sports Illustrated got the scoop.

In an article by James (as told to SI’s Lee Jenkins), James explained his reasons for returning to Cleveland to play for the Cavs:

It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. I want to give them hope when I can. I want to inspire them when I can. My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.

You can bet this essay is going to break some of SI’s page view records.

Congrats to everyone at the magazine. You should all get to call it a day.

Kevin Martinez Leaves Details for Maxim

kevin martinez GKevin Martinez has left Details behind and joined Maxim as its new publisher.

Making this move a little bit more interesting is the report from The New York Post that Martinez “was abruptly booted from the Condé Nast headquarters” after he said he was departing Details.

Martinez has been with Details since 2011, when he joined as VP and publisher. Prior to that, he served as Elle’s VP and brand publisher.

Martinez previously held roles at Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar.
