In the end, the Cleveland Cavaliers took home the NBA title after beating the Golden State Warriors in California, 93 to 89. In the end, the Warriors’ 3 to 1 lead in the Finals series was not enough. In the end, their 73-9 regular season record meant nothing.
In the end, of course, it was LeBron James who beat the Dubs and who finally did what he said he would do all those years ago – he brought a major title to the city of Cleveland.
The last time Cleveland celebrated a title was in 1964 when the Browns won the Super Bowl. In 1964, LeBron’s mom wasn’t even born.
LeBron had 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists and the weirdest thing about it is that he did not even look that dominant last night. At times, it looked like he was pushing it needlessly, especially since Kyrie Irving had such a great second half.
When all is said and done, however, King James capped off two 40+ points performances with a triple double and it was his insane block that signaled the end for the reigning champs.

Simply put, it is one of those moments that will definitely go down in the history of the NBA.
