It’s happening! It’s actually happening! The two best words in professional sports are officially a thing:
But exactly how did we get here?
Trailing 3-1 in the series after four games, the Cavaliers have muscled back to push the NBA Finals to seven games. They’re trying to do something no team has ever done before in the history of the NBA – and that’s come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the championship.
In last night’s 115-101 win over the Warriors, also Cleveland’s last home game of the season, we saw a man possessed take over the game – and his name is King James.
James’ Game 6 performance (41 points – 11 assists – 8 rebounds) came on the heels of his Game 5 performance (41 points – 16 rebounds – 7 assists) – one that many thought was his best postseason performance ever. The King ranks first in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals among ALL players in the Finals. We don’t know why it took this long for Miami LeBron to show up, but we’re more than glad he has.
