Mike Brown will again thrive in “The Forrest City.”

Although still unofficial, Mike Brown is reportedly set to return to Cleveland to coach the Cavaliers.

The 43-year-old Brown led Cleveland from 2005 until getting axed in May 2010.

Resurfacing in Tinseltown, the 2009 NBA Coach of the Year was again clipped last November following the Los Angeles Lakers 1-4 start to the season.

Despite agreeing to teach a Cavaliers squad removed from a hideous 24-58 campaign, Brown is about to oversee an organization on the brink of blooming.

Elite point guard Kyrie Irving, who averaged 22.5 points, 5.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds over 59 contests, gives Cavaliers supporters a reason to hope, believe and watch.

The 21-year-old Irving, an Australian-American who the Cavs picked out of Duke University with the first overall selection in the 2011 draft, is a truly unique player with limitless potential.

As the winner of the 2012 Rookie of the Year Award, the 6-foot-3, 190 pound Irving is capable of guiding a squad to glory if surrounded by an efficient supporting cast.

Thankfully for Cavs fans, Cleveland general manager Chris Grant has already acquired 21-year-old shooting guard Dion Waiters and 22-year-old forward Tristan Thompson to back Irving.

Plus, as a collection of struggling bastards with the third worst mark in the association, the Cavaliers will land one of the top choices in the draft on June 27.

After hometown turncoat LeBron James abandoned “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Capital of the World” in favor of “The Sunshine State” in July 2010, basketball essentially became a profane word in Cleveland.

Roughly three years later, with a quartet of lottery talent at the disposal of a solid defensive mind, the future is beaming for the Cavaliers and Mike Brown in Cleveland.
