Back when the Wizards-Cavaliers rivalry was a thing, London Fletcher made it pretty clear that while his football loyalties were in Washington, his basketball loyalties remained in Ohio. Thus, Fletcher was among the many D.C. athletes who hurried to chime in on LeBron James’s decision to return home.

Ohio-educated Nats reliever Jerry Blevins also seemed pleased.
As did fellow reliever Aaron Barrett.
Johnny football and LeBron in the same city? Watch out… Cleveland on the rise!

Elsewhere, one former (?) Wizard was pleased for James.
Much respect to LJ for that — Garrett Temple (@GTemp14) July 11, 2014
Another former (?) Wizard was ready to get his own free agency plans settled.

And yet another former Wizard was ready to let the old rivalry go.
The team’s television voice reacted as a television voice ought.
Wow. @KingJames back to Cleveland. How do you like that? Wonder what we’ll witness this time?
