1. LeBron James can bring a championship home
It’s all about bring one home to “The Land” right?
Ever since LeBron James was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, the hometown hero has been viewed as the savior of the city and the one that was going to bring home the city of Cleveland a championship and end their long drought.
It is a city that has had to suffer through heartbreak at the highest of levels and a city that has had to suffer through some truly terrible teams. Cleveland fans are so used to disappointment, that there is a lot of pent up rage among those that lived through the roughest years that a sports fan can probably have.
When this series got started, it looked like it was going to be just another notch in the belt of disappointment for Cleveland. Now, all those sorrows and heartbreaks can turn into triumph for the city if the Cavaliers can pull off just one more win.
James has made it a promise to bring a championship home to Cleveland and he is just one game away from doing so. There is no doubt that he is going to play the hardest 48 minutes of his life and do absolutely everything he can to win on Sunday night.
The images of “The Fumble” and many other heartbreaking moments still live in the hearts of a city that has been dragged through the mud repeatedly, often by their own doing.
James has the chance to become the hero the city deserves and forever mark his legacy. He can be the one to knock off the 73-win team and be the leader of a team that came back from being down 3-1 in the NBA Finals.
A legacy is at stake and James has 48 minutes to get it done.
