LeBron James and his relentless, never-count-them-out Cavaliers pulled off an improbable NBA final comeback, and Cleveland is title town again at long last.

James delivered on a promise from two years ago to bring a championship to his native northeast Ohio, and he and the Cavs became the first team to rally from a 3-1 finals deficit by beating the defending champion Golden State Warriors 93-89 on Sunday night to end a 52-year major sports championship drought in Cleveland.

James almost single-handedly carried the Cavs back into this series and finished with 27 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds as the Cavs captured their first championship in franchise history and gave their city its first major sports winner since the Browns won the NFL title in 1964.

“Cleveland! This is for you!” James bellowed in his post-game interview before being announced as the NBA final MVP.
