LeBron James achieved success under former Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown, and now he believes the possibility of Brown returning to the Cavaliers should be legitimate.

"It should be. It should be real," James said.

The two had reportedly clashed up until James' departure in 2010, but the NBA's reigning MVP has offered support for Brown over the past season.

Brown was fired by the Lakers five games into this season.
