The Cleveland Cavaliers have just accomplished the unthinkable!! After being down 3-1 in the NBA Championship series, the underdog Cavs came back to win 3 games in a row over the defending champs from Golden State to claim the NBA title! This was the first time ever that a team came back from a 3-1 series standing to win the championship! This was also the first ever NBA championship in franchise history for the Cleveland Caveliers! Their victory was even more sweet because the Warriors had previously set a record with 73 victories in the regular season and were fighting hard to claim their next title.
Cleveland native LeBron James, who ended the night with a triple double–27 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists–was particularly moved by this big win for his home state. “I came back for a reason,” James said after the championship game. “I came back to bring a championship to our city.” And thats just what he did with one of the most impressive game 7 performances in NBA history! James grew up near Akron, Ohio and made his town, and the entire state, very proud. He previously won two NBA championships with the Miami Heat, but this was his first championship with the Cavaliers and his first for his home state. When asked about his amazing win, James said “the game always gives back to people that are true to the game.” “I’ve watched it. I know the history of the game, and I was just calm. I was calm.”
We are sure that all of Cleveland and his adorable Cane Corso named King are very proud of him! When asked about his not-so-little pup, LeBron said, I guess you could say that King has the same personality as I have. He’s big and he looks fierce, but you know, he’s just a lot of fun and very playful. Yeah, you could say that he’s like me.” Don’t lose that underdog spirit Cleveland, Lebron and King, there’s always a next season to bring home another title!!
Congratulations to Lebron and the Cleveland Cavaliers for an amazing victory! The underdog always has our support!
