LEBRON JAMES helped the Cleveland Cavaliers win their first NBA Championship in franchise history following a tense 93–89 win in Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

The Cavaliers are the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3–1 deficit in the seven-game series.

The Cavs’ win ends the city of Cleveland’s championship drought, dating back to 1964 with a Cleveland Browns NFL Championship win (preceding the first Super Bowl by three years).

This is LeBron’s third championship, and his first for Cleveland.

The Cavs’ previous two Finals appearances — 2007 and 2015 — were led by LeBron, who left Cleveland for the Miami Heat in 2010.

He returned to the Cavaliers in 2015 with the goal of winning a championship for his home state.

The 31-year-old scored 27 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

LeBron was named NBA FInals MVP for the third time in his career.
