The NBA Finals concluded as dramatically as they started, and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been crowned the 2016 NBA Champs.
After a historic series that featured some the most lopsided wins in NBA Finals history and entertained fans with as much drama off the court as on, LeBron James put in another incredible performance to lift his team over the historically successful Golden State Warriors and delivering a disappointing end to their 73-9 regular season record.
While games 1 through 6 were never close, Game 7 was a classic matchup where the lead changed multiple times in a nail-biting, and heart pounding battle.
The series was incredible, with both teams leaving it all on the court, including two historic greats trading shots for a ring and their legacies. LeBron emerged the victor, leading the charge with 27 points, 11 assists, and 11 rebounds to end the championship drought in Cleveland, a city that hasn’t seen a title in 46 seasons.
As it stands, LeBron will be remembered as one of the greatest players in NBA history, and for very good reason.
