The Cleveland Cavaliers made history on Sunday by defeating the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals to become the first team in history to overcome a 3-1 deficit.In what will go down as one of the greatest games in NBA history, the Cavaliers shocked the Warriors by winning Game 7 on the road 93-89 thanks to another amazing performance by LeBron James--who took home MVP honors after putting the team on his shoulders. After back-to-back 41-point performances, James finished the critical Game 7 with 27 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 11 assists to bring the city of Cleveland their first sports championship in 52 years.

Cavaliers make history

When James and the Cavaliers found themselves down 3-1 heading into Game 5, nobody was giving them much of a chance --especially when considering the fact that no team had ever managed to overcome that type of deficit to win the NBA Finals. Instead of fallingunder pressure, the Cavaliers elevated their game to a whole new level and seemed to play better with their backs against the wall -- especially when it came to James.

Oracle Arena was never an easy place for opponents to play this year and the fact that Cleveland found a way to win not one, but two games in a row at Oracle Arena (Game 5 and 7) to win the series is nothing short of amazing.

LeBron delivers on promise

Two years ago, James made a promise to the fans of Cleveland that he would do everything in his power to deliver a championship to the city.

Even though he previously won two championships during his stint with the Miami Heat, there's no question the third championship won by James with the Cavaliers will be the most special.

James knew how hungry this city has been to win a sports championship after 50+ years of nothing but bad luck. Even when it seemed like the end of this season was heading in that direction once again with the Cavaliers down 3-1 in the series, James never gave up and instead displayed some of the best performances ever seen in the final three games.
