“In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have.” - LeBron James
The Drive. The Fumble. The Shot. Jose Mesa in game 7 of the World Series.
Fifty two years of being “that close,” and fifty two years of never getting there.
We knew it would never be easy, because nothing comes easy in Northeast Ohio. “Nothing is given.”
And it wasn’t easy. Down 3-1, against the “greatest team of all time,” fifty three years seemed imminent. Maybe, we would never see a Cleveland team lift a trophy again.
One of our own would change that. LeBron James, would change that.
In the process he would cement his legacy as this generations greatest player. It seems almost impossible one player could lead a Finals series in every significant statistical category, but not if you’re King James.
The 2016 NBA Finals, marks the end of whatever curse you believed kept Cleveland from a championship.
Yeah, it was the hard way. But to have one of us be the one to end the the fifty two years, makes it even more special.
