At the Cleveland Clinic, LeBron James underwent surgery to remove a benign growth in his mouth.

The surgery lasted five hours and it is reported that the procedure was a success and James is expected to make a full recovery.

James has known about this health issue for a matter of months, but obviously kept it to his family and himself until the season ended.

It is good to hear that James's surgery went well and that it will not get in the way of any offseason training.

After losing to the Orlando Magic during the Eastern Conference Finals, you can expect the King to come out next season with nothing but vengeance in his eyes and heart.

If the Cavaliers can somehow sign or trade for a big man in the low post, James and Cleveland could be looking at making the NBA Finals for the second time in his career.

Good luck to James next season and I wish all the best to him.
