"LeBron James Shows That Winning Isn’t Everything—Perseverance Is"
Sunday night’s NBA championship-winning game was historic on many levels. When the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 7, they became the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the finals. Led by Cleveland’s LeBron James, they also became the first team all year to beat the Warriors twice on their home court, and the first team all year to have beat the Warriors in three straight games. But most of all, the Cavs are the first team to win a championship for Cleveland in 52 years. As the recent ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “Believeland” puts it, over the past half century, of all the American cities with three sports franchises, only one has failed to win a championship: Cleveland.
