Cavs NBA Championship ring reminds everyone that Warriors blew a 3-1 lead
The Cleveland Cavaliers were awarded their 2016 NBA Championship rings last night in the home opener against the New York Knicks. Until yesterday, no one know for sure what the rings would look like (aside from really cool).
Of course, after the game, you knew the Cavs’ Snapchat King took to the Snap and showed fans the stunning details of the ring.

You can see the games the Cavs won, which also sort of signifies that the first time in NBA history that a team came back from a 3-1 deficit to win an NBA Championship (Also that the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead).
Per the ring designers,Kay Jewelers: (via CBS Sports)
On the interior side of the ring is a line of seven gemstones to represent the best-of-seven games in an NBA Finals series. In the order the games were won, three white diamonds depict the Golden State Warriors and four genuine “wine-colored” garnets represent the Cavaliers, symbolizing the first time in NBA history that any team has overcome a 3-1 deficit to become NBA Champions.
