He’s heading back to Miami..
Amazing! But,,,, I no longer care about thug pro sports. And I’m in Cleveland.
Congratulations to the Cavaliers. They played well. It was a nice game to watch.
The first major sports title for Cleveland since the Browns won the NFL championship, before the Super Bowl era, in 1964.
LeBron crying with joy.
Your city, Cleveland is in chaos tonight. Tomorrow morning, half of the city may turn out to work on a Monday.
I could not care less. I call the game “thump thump” for the sound of the ball dribblig on the wood. It is a mindless game to be wacthed only in the last 2 minutes , if you care. I don’t.
Congrats to the Cavs..Golden State CHOKED, EPIC CHOKE JOB..had the series won and just threw it away..Golden State lives by the 3 and dies by the 3 and this time they died by the 3..maybe this is good news for Trump, here you have a team no one said had a chance of winning and they came back and won..everyone is saying Trump has zero chance of winning, would be nice to see the same happen to him
Sorry to see the Warriors lose it, but glad for the city of Cleveland - I remember watching the Ernest Byner fumble on TV. That city’s been waiting a long, long time.
“Burn on big river.....Burn on!”
Warriors had a great season but went into the finals with a hurt Curry. Basically the same way Cleveland was hurt last year without Irving, who should have been the MVP of the title game. The Warriors dominated Cleveland in the regular season with a healthy team. Both teams should go at it again next year. Now all the talk about is LeBron James better than Jordan. Jordan was 6-0 in NBA finals, never going to a 7th game. James is now 3-4. So he’s a great player but he’s not Michael Jordan.
Never thought I’d see it happen. But now it has and it was a long time coming.
I lost a lot of respect for Stephen Curry. I actually found myself rooting for the first time for LeBron. I just hate to see him going back to Miami, though.
I just hope half the city survives the celebrations.
Cleveland will be lucky if it is not burned to the ground.
Americans are not the restrained civil people we were 100 years ago.
Now we are the football hooligans of Scotland.
So?, Ford won Le Mans!
Warriors lost as many post-season games as regular season games.
Cleveland got James then went out and got Kevin Love, to go with Irving. They start a first team all NBA at every position. Golden State is basically Curry and Thompson shooting threes. Curry played hurt the entire series. I wish James would retire but he’s probably going back to Miami.
