Sunday June 19, 2016 in game 7 the Cavaliers faced a rematch from last year’s finals with the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors, coming off an NBA record 73–9 season, started off strong, leading the series 3–1 after game 4. However, the Cavaliers, led by strong play from James and Irving, won the following three games to win the championship with a 93-89 victory . It made the Cavaliers the eleventh team in NBA history to come back from a 3–1 deficit to win a playoff series and the first to do so and win the NBA Finals. James was named unanimous NBA Finals MVP, making him the fifth player to earn at least three. This win made the city of Cleveland’s 52-year championship drought across all pro sports come to an end. Congratulations Cleveland Cavs.
