LeBron James really ruined the Golden State Warriors party in 2016. The Dubs were coming for breaking the record of most victories during the regular season and after the good things they did on the way to the Finals, everybody believed they were set to win it all that year. However, James and Cavaliers told otherwise, beating the Warriors in seven games.

That was the most impressive comeback in the history of the league since the Cavs went 3-1 down after four games. When everybody believed the job was practically done for the Warriors, Bron and his Cavs got to work and turned things around. LeBron even sensed when the Warriors were beaten, as he called it after Game 6.

He was pretty confident entering Game 7, describing how the Warriors had blown their chance to win back-to-back championships.

“They’re f----- up mentally and physically,” James said in one video. “I’m telling you, they f----- up.”

After that, Cleveland would go to win their first NBA championship ever with LeBron having a clutch block on Andre Iguodala and Kyrie Irving sinking a huge 3-pointer in front of Stephen Curry to give the Cavs a lead that they would never lose.

LeBron scored 41 points with 8 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 6 before he recorded a 27-point triple-double in the championship game to help his team overcome the Warriors at the Oracle Arena. LeBron already saw it; the Dubs were beaten and he didn't miss the chance to beat them, venging the loss they suffered the prior season.
