Since the start of the NBA’s free agency, much of the talk about who will go where revolved around one question: Will LeBron go home?

For James, a return to his home state of Ohio is a sensational turnaround after the fiasco that was “The Decision.” After all, it was only four years ago that Cavaliers fans were using LeBron jerseys for firewood after the star decided to take his talents to South Beach.

But reactionary fans and embarrassing letters aside, James’ return to Cleveland really does make the mind wonder. What if every team was full of hometown stars?

Imagine no more. Here’s what the NBA would look like if stars played for their local clubs:
