LeBron James
LeBron James led Cleveland Cavaliers to a dramatic victory in the 2015/16 NBA Finals. The Cavaliers became the first team in basketball history 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 and was voted Most Valuable Player in the Finals. It was an emotional success for James, who had returned in 2014 to Cleveland, the first team for whom he played, after four highly successful years at Miami Heat.
