Cleveland, for the first time in over 50 years you are a champion. LeBron James fulfills his promise in bringing you championship. A 93-89 victory over the Golden State Warriors on the road in a game seven of the NBA Finals. And what more of a dramatic way to win other than being the first time in the history of the NBA to come back from down 1-3 to win the title.
This wasn’t an easy road for the Cavs. There was all sorts of controversy in regarding this team all year long. Some questioned if Kyrie Irving and LeBron James could co-exist on the court together. And the most talked about misfit player on any team in the NBA, Kevin Love. Not to mention firing your head coach, (David Blatt) mid season with a 30-11 record for a guy, (Tyronn Lue) who has never coached before. But in the end the stars all aligned for the city of Cleveland as your Cavaliers brought home an NBA world championship.
Now, I am still not a big fan of Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, but I am happy that this city can finally put to rest there title drought. I am a fan of great players, and being able to watch LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in their primes is a blessing for anyone that is a basketball fan.
The hashtag for the Cavs on Twitter has been #AllInCLE and there was no doubt that their two biggest stars were all in as LeBron James finished game 7 with a triple double and Kyrie Irving added 26 points including the dagger to seal the game.
Two years ago when LeBron James came back to Cleveland he wrote a letter that said he would bring a championship to this town. Now, in 2016, King James you have made true on your promise. Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers your 2016 NBA Champions.
