Two years ago today, this happened. For years Clevelanders had been dealing with things like The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. The Decision. Then on that fateful Father’s Day evening, LeBron James and crew did the impossible. They brought a championship back to Cleveland. It still doesn’t seem real and even though we’ve not fared nearly as well against the Warriors the last two years, nothing will ever tarnish that night.
I got to share it with my wife, kids, neighbors and all of Cleveland. It was a special night that will never be undone.
If you know me at all you know I’m not only a huge Cleveland sports fan but I’m also a life long professional wrestling fan. Triple H (the real life COO of the WWE as well as an on-air performer) just tweeted this photo… and it’s perfect…
He had this to say: “An unprecedented comeback and a long overdue @NBA Championship… THAT is something to celebrate. Congrats @cavs!”
I could go on and on but this morning I don’t have to. The Cleveland Cavaliers did something last night that had never been done. They came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the first NBA title in team history. I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
I got to share it with my wife, kids, neighbors and all of Cleveland. It was a special night. The city is still buzzing this morning.
I was sitting in one of my favorite Cleveland watering holes (The Winking Lizard) the other day and saw this stat flash across the television. It’s been 50 seasons since the Indians last won a title. 47 seasons for the Browns, 44 for the the Cavaliers. Will those streaks continue or will the Cavs be able to come back from a 2-3 deficit in the NBA Finals?
How long will these streaks continue? If it’s not the Cavs this season what is the best chance for Cleveland to win a title?
