The NBA final game was a real doozy. The Golden State Warriers came into the game favorites, had home field advantage, had led the series 3 games to 1, but Cleveland came to play, and play they did. LeBron James 31 and Kyrie Irving 24 had a win for the ages. It was the first championship in Cleveland since 1964 when the Cleveland Browns with Jim Brown the great Syracuse back beat Baltimore with Johnny Unitas in an upset.
That win from long ago has a special place in most Clevelanders’ hearts. The players who played in the game went on to become living legends in the town of Cleveland and are still remembered to this day. Not only is it remembered in Cleveland but ESPN ranks the ’64 title game as the second-greatest NFL postseason upset, behind only Joe Namath’s guaranteed win over the Colts in Super Bowl III four seasons later.
