The Cleveland Cavaliers win the NBA Championship

Ending a 52 year professional sports title drought in the city of Cleveland


The Cleveland Cavaliers have become the first team in 52 years to bring a championship title to Northeast Ohio. This is a great day for Cleveland, Ohio and the rest of the known universe! Check out the play of the game below!

The Cavs are the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. The victory over the Golden State Warriors is even more historic as they set a record earlier this year for most wins in a regular season with 73 wins. The Cavs showed the heart of champions and the state of Ohio cannot wait to welcome them home. 

LeBron James said in his letter announcing his return to Cleveland that "In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have. I’m ready to accept the challenge. I’m coming home." Congratulations to LeBron and the rest of the Cavaliers team.
