LeBron James has had an extraordinary career in the NBA. A 17x All-Star, 4x MVP, and 4x NBA Champion, there have been a lot of amazing moments for the basketball legend.
But perhaps the greatest moment of King James' career came exactly 5 years ago today when he led the Cleveland Cavaliers back from a 1-3 deficit in the Finals to capture Cleveland's first-ever NBA Championship.
On Twitter, James reflected back on that crowning achievement with fond feelings.
To come back from down 3-1 to beat the 73-9 Warriors may be the best thing LeBron has ever done on the basketball court. To this day, it's what many consider to be his best case for being the GOAT.
But, no matter how it may impact his legacy, it's a time that was important for Bron. Growing up in Akron, Ohio, he had dreams of bringing a Championship to the area for much of his career.
After he came back home from Miami, his mission was to break the long cycle of failure for the franchise by bringing them that elusive title, something nobody else had ever done.
He has since won another Championship, in 2020 with the Lakers, and nobody is sure if there will be more. But, for Bron, there may be no other victory as important or as special as that Game 7 win in 2016.
