LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors, in game-7 of the NBA Finals to win the NBA Championship for the City of Cleveland. No longer can anyone who has watched Cleveland Sports, over the past 50 years say they've never seen a championship come to Cleveland.
It's over folks, the 5-decade drought has been lifted, thanks to King-James who played his butt over in this 7-game-series. LeBron wanted this NBA title, more than anything. It meant the world to him and you could see his emotions running wild after the win.
Northeast, Ohio is home to LeBron James. He like many other Cleveland sports fans, has never seen a championship in his lifetime come to the north-coast. But that's all changed now, and it has a lot to do with LeBron James coming home, just 2-years ago.
No team has ever came back after being down 3-1 in the series to win the NBA Championship. LeBron knew it wasn't going to be easy, but he knew it could be done. Following the win in game-6, James said records are there to be broken.
He and his Cavalier team-mates went out and did just that. The Cavaliers are now the first team, that has ever come back from being down 3-games to 1, to win the NBA title.
It kind of gives you a tear in your eyes. Seeing how much James put into this series, and how much emotion he showed after the win, made it hard to hold back any tears.
James is an incredible talent, and Cleveland is lucky to have him. Before I get to carried away, talking about LeBron, lets not forget the play if Kyrie Irving, and Tristan Thompson.
Both of those guys busted their humps for the Cavaliers, and without the efforts they put forth, we might not have won, or even made it to game-7.
Tristan is one of the most dependable players in the NBA. His work ethic is incredible. He goes in game-after-game and does the dirty work, and he keeps on showing up night after night.
What an athlete this guy is. Then there's Kyrie, his ball handling skills are extreme. He was able to score at will in the last 3-games, and at times he made Curry look stupid. But none of these guys would be able to shine this bright, if James hadn't come home.
There's no place like home and LeBron James knows that. He came back, told the fans he would bring home the gold, and he went out and got it done.
The good people of the City of Cleveland, who are some of the best sports fans in the world, can now say their team in a World Champion Team.
Congratulations to LeBron James, the entire Cleveland Cavaliers team, and the great people of the City of Cleveland. on a job well done.......
