The Cleveland Cavaliers just did the unthinkable, overcoming a 3-1 series deficit to become the first team in NBA history to win the title despite being on the receiving end of that score. They also stopped a city’s 52-year championship drought and gave the franchise its first ever championship.

The odds could not have been any bigger than what they faced. Golden State was primed to complete their perfect season, but LeBron James channeled his dark side, the persona that the rest of the league prayed to remain asleep inside of him. But here they are at the top of the basketball world, and the rest have taken notice to their accomplishment for the ages.
