Basketball great LeBron James inspired Cleveland Cavaliers to one of sport’s all-time unforgettable success stories. James went back to Cleveland in 2014 to try to bring them an NBA Championship for the first time. And that is what the team delivered against the formidable Golden State Warriors, who were coming off a regular season record of 73 wins. Led by James, the Cavaliers became the first basketball team to come back from a 3-1 series deficit to win. James played a crucial role scoring back-to-back 41 points in games five and six.
