After a seven-game series, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA championship with a score of 93-89. It’s been 52 years since the city won the championship — which made it all the more emotional for LeBron James who promised to get his hometown the win.
“I’m true to the game, and I know what I bring to the table,” James said after the championship, according to USA Today. “I came back for a reason. 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 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.”
James, who also had tears of joy streaming down his face, shared his secret to coming back from a grim opening season — they were down 3-1 in the game of 7.
“The game always gives back to people that’s true to the game. I’ve watched it. I know the history of the game, and I was just calm. I was calm. I was focused. I was locked in.”
Now, the city is roaring. Congrats to the Cavaliers!
