Cleveland Cavaliers Win 2016 NBA Title: Musicians & Celebs React
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.
The Cavs prevailed 93-89 in the final contest Sunday night in Oakland, completing a remarkable comeback against a team coming off the all-time regular season best record of 73 wins and 9 losses.
Musicians and celebs lit up social media to pay tribute to the champs, which become the first team to storm back from a 3-1 Finals deficit.
