The Cleveland Cavaliers ended a long title drought by beating the Golden State Warriors in a dramatic game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. 

The Cavs, led by its superstars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, snatched a tight, see-sawing contest against the Warriors and their “Splash Brothers” guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
