Looks Like the Summer of 2010 Can Now Be Forgotten...

The Cleveland Cavaliers pose for a team photo after defeating the Golden State Warriors, 93-89, in Game 7 to win the NBA Finals...on June 19, 2016.

Much props to LeBron James for making history by leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first franchise championship tonight. Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors' 73-9 regular season was officially rendered moot as the Cavs became the first NBA team to come back from a 3-1 series deficit to win the Finals. But I'm pretty sure the majority of you reading this watched Game 7, so there's no point in bringing up stats that you already know. LeBron should stand proud... He made up for the debacle that was 2010's The Decision.

Rumor has it that LeBron might possibly go to the Lakers or back to Miami now that he won a major sports title for Cleveland, which hasn't gotten one for 52 years (the last championship being by the Cleveland Browns in 1964...two years before the Super Bowl was created by the NFL). All I can say is, King James going to the Lake Show will make up for (sort of) his boss Dan Gilbert fucking things up for Kobe when the Black Mamba lost his chance to win a 6th ring after Chris Paul's trade to the Lakers was blocked in 2011...courtesy of Gilbert writing a letter to then-NBA commissioner David Stern and having him nix the deal. Bastards. Carry on.

The 1995-'96 Chicago Bulls is still the greatest team in NBA history.
