When the Cleveland Cavaliers shocked the world by rallying from a 3-1 NBA Finals deficit to claim the franchise’s first ever NBA championship, it marked the greatest comeback ever witnessed on the game’s grandest stage. The Cavaliers not only won in thrilling fashion, but they also provided Cleveland sports fans their first major professional sports league championship in more than half a century. In the process, a special bond was forged with a community of believers, who went “ALL IN 2 16.” It would all become a truly unique experience for a devout fan base that fiercely supported and joyously celebrated this remarkably resilient team.
Before there was “A Season to Believe,” there had to be a reason to believe. It arrived unexpectedly in July of 2014, when four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James penned an essay explaining his passionate desire to return to his roots in Northeast Ohio. The Akron native made it clear that his mission was to bring The Larry O’Brien Trophy to the city of Cleveland.
Teamed with All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, a depleted “Big Three” would come up short in their first season together at the 2015 NBA Finals. But the 2016 season would be a different story. Fueled by the relentless effort from an unsung supporting cast and leadership from savvy veterans, the Cavaliers would all come together under the watchful eye of rookie head coach Tyronn Lue, who took over the reins at midseason.
Battle-tested and hardened under the glare of the game’s brightest lights, the Cays stormed through the Eastern Conference Playoffs and then authored a legendary final chapter certain to be retold for years to come.
