LeBron James Brings NBA Championship to Cleveland
The Cleveland Cavaliers are 2016 NBA Champions. LeBron James has delivered the elusive title to his home city, leading the Cavs to victory over the reigning champion Golden State Warriors in seven games, winning 93-89. It was the third NBA Finals the Cavs have appeared in since drafting “King James,” dropping the first two in 2007 and last year to the same Warriors. Down 3-1 in the series, the Cavs have finished the comeback against the record-setting Golden State team, a feat never done before in the NBA.
LeBron James recorded a triple-double, with help from his supporting cast. Kyrie Irving hit a clutch three in the final minutes to give Cleveland its final lead that they would hold onto. Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson contributed 9 points each, but it was James and Irving with 27 and 26 points respectively that led the way.
