Tearful LeBron James After Winning NBA Finals: ‘Cleveland, This Is For You’

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers made history Sunday night. They won the first championship in franchise history with a 93-89 victory over the record-setting Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

As the final buzzer sounded, James collapsed to the ground in tears, overcome with emotion after finally bringing a championship home to Cleveland.

James was named the unanimous Finals MVP after scoring the third triple-double in Game 7 history. The championship was the first in Cavaliers franchise history, and the first for a major sports franchise in Cleveland since 1964.
