The recently christened Cleveland Cavaliers just won their first ever NBA championship. And they swept the major awards at the 2016 ESPYS
LeBron James was named the best male athlete, the best NBA player and also was awarded the ESPY for best championship performance for helping to navigate the Cavaliers to the franchise’s first title.
James led the Cavaliers to an unprecedented comeback from a 3-1 series deficit against those same Warriors he lost to last year with a depleted squad. In doing so, James became the first player in NBA Finals history to lead both teams full playoff series in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, earning unanimous Finals MVP
The Cavs were also named the best team and James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love also accepted the award for best moment after making Cleveland a championship city for the first time in over 50 years.
