The Cleveland Cavaliers are the new NBA champions. This is the first championship for the city of Cleveland in 52 years. The last time they won was in 1964. LeBron James who returned to the Cavaliers 2 years ago struggled to sum up what might be his sweetest championship yet, the one he is so proudly taking home to his native northeast Ohio just as he promised to do when he returned to the Cavaliers.
When he returned to Cleveland he said:
“I’m coming home with what I said I was going to do,” he said, adding, “I can’t wait to get off that plane, hold that trophy up and see all our fans at the terminal.”
Richard Jefferson said.:
“I’ve never seen a man in my life tell an entire state: `Get on my back, I got you. Get on my back and I’m going to carry you. I don’t care if we fail, I’m going to wake up the next morning and I’m going to start working out and prepare for the next year,’” “… He was like, `I’m going to come back home because I promised them that I would do something.’ And he carried us the whole way.”
