LeBron James delivered the Cleveland Cavaliers their first title in franchise history.

On Sunday night, the King’s Cavs became the first team to ever overcome a 3-1 NBA Finals deficit, securing a 93-89 series-clincher over a Golden State Warriors team that set an NBA record with 73 wins during the regular season.

After dropping 27 points, 11 assists, 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in the Game 7 triumph, James was overcome with emotion.

He cried tears of joy:
