LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers made history twice, while Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors experienced an epic collapse on Sunday, falling 93-89 in Game Seven of the NBA Finals.
With the win, the Cavs become the city’s first sports team to win a title in over 50 years, not since the Jim Brown led Cleveland Browns won the football title in 1964. The Cavs also became the fist team to ever come back from a 3-games-to-1 deficit in the NBA Finals.
After storming through the regular season with a record 73 wins from 82 games, the Warriors penned another unwanted mark in the NBA record books on Sunday when they became the first team to squander a 3-1 Finals lead.
Prior to this year, no team in 32 tries had ever come all the way back from 1-3 down to win the NBA Finals — and they accomplished this historic feat at the Oracle where the Warriors had lost just four times all season.
Take a look at some of the funnest and best memes of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the 2016 NBA Champions.
