LeBron James leads Cavaliers to NBA title victory

Cleveland native LeBron James brings home their first NBA Championship title as the Cavaliers won a tense NBA grand final in the Oracle Arena, beating the Golden State Warriors by 93 to 89.

The achievement by LeBron is all the more unimaginable when considers that the last time a Cleveland team ever won anything major was when the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship in December 27, 1964.

The 4-time NBA MVP dominated the playoff series even as the Cavaliers were pushed to a brink at 3-1. 32 other teams who had fallen to that score in the Finals were never able to make a comeback, but LeBron made sure his team did.

Even if he was in the same court as reigning MVP Steph Curry, when things mattered, LeBron and the Cavs outplayed and outgunned the greatest regular-season team.

There was no question that the Warriors would have solidified their place in NBA history, but this just wasn’t their time; even their entire home-supporting yellow crowd looked dazed and defeated.

James won 27 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and as the game ties 89-89 with one minute left, his teammate Kyrie Irving made one from downtown to pull ahead gradually into the one of the most improbable titles in NBA history.

Irving finished next to LeBron with 26 points, and the Cavaliers formed a raucous mob at the buzzer, mixed with every emotion ranging from ecstasy, disbelief, relief, all at once.

Even as neither team could find any separation until the closing moments, Draymond Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists for the Warriors, and Stephen Curry had 17 points but shot just 6 of 19 from the field. Curry also missed one vital shot in the final minute that could have tied the game.

And with that, the Warriors were unable to top off their record-breaking regular season with a championship, while the Cavaliers revel in, how far they’ve come and what they’ve achieved, which, as underdog victories go, may take some time.
