The Cleveland Cavaliers Are The 2016 NBA Champions

LeBron James fulfills his promise and brings the city of Cleveland a championship. By far one of the most dominating individuals the NBA has even seen, LeBron James and the Cavs became the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit and beat the Golden State Warriors in a thrilling Game 7. Though it was the closet game the series has seen, Kyrie Irving's late 3 pointer was the dagger that would lead Cleveland past Golden State. For one of the best Finals performances in the history of the NBA, LeBron James was named the Finals MVP for the fourth time in his career. Draymond Green was the scoring leader for the Warriors, almost notching a triple-double with 32 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assist in the lost. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were both able to get good looks on multiple shots but it wasn't enough for the duo of James and Irving.

From the thrills of Game 7 to the series in its entirety, LeBron leading the Cavaliers to it's first championship was a remarkable way to cap off one of the most historic seasons the NBA has ever seen.
