LeBron James taking in World Cup final

LeBron James, the four-time MVP of the NBA, is in Brazil to watch today’s World Cup final.

Just a few hours after arriving in Rio De Janiero, James said soccer’s showcase event is bigger than the NBA Finals “in the sense that it’s the world and you have so many countries here.”

James has been making headlines in the United States with his decision to leave the Miami Heat and return to the Cleveland Cavaliers in his native Ohio. In an essay in Sports Illustrated, the 29-year-old laid out his reasons for returning and said his relationship with Northeast Ohio “is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.”
