Sunday’s night game between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers was a nail biter. But the Cavaliers proved victorious and brought home the trophy.
On top of the win, the Cavs became the first team to win the NBA title by overcoming a 3-1 deficit, the Associated Press reports.
“Our fans, they ride or die, no matter what’s been going on, no matter the Browns, the Indians, the Cavs, and all other sports teams,” Cavs’ star LeBron James, who walked away from the game as MVP said, according to the AP. “They continue to support us. And for us to be able to end this, end this drought, our fans deserve it. They deserve it. And it was for them.

“I came back for a reason,” James said. “I came back to bring a championship to our city. I knew what I was capable of doing. I knew what I learned in the last couple years that I was gone, and I knew if I had to — when I came back — I knew I had the right ingredients and the right blueprint to help this franchise get back to a place that we’ve never been. That’s what it was all about.
“It’s going to be the biggest party Cleveland has ever seen,” he added.
One of the most talked about postgame interviews comes from J.R. Smith, who dedicated the game to his father.
