LeBron James, after leading Cleveland to an NBA title in 2016, warned those who hadn't supported the Cavaliers that "it makes no sense for you to live at this point."
Before the start of the 2014–15 season, LeBron James returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers with one objective in mind:
to lead the team to an NBA title. In the 2016 NBA Finals, James lived up to his word.
After falling behind 3-1 in the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers made history by coming back to win the title.
LeBron James offered the right retort for anyone who wasn't a fan of the Cavaliers, and the Golden State Warriors had the perfect response by signing Kevin Durant during the summer.
James remarked in his pregame statement against the New York Knicks, "At this moment,
if you don't live here, work here, play here, dedicate yourself to Cleveland, then it makes no sense for you to live today." Cleveland versus the rest of the globe.
James gave a now-famous speech and then danced hysterically away from the microphone. The Cavaliers were energized by James' speech, but ultimately fell short against the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals.
The Warriors won the Finals 4-1, with Kevin Durant being named Finals MVP. KD scored 35.2 points per game on average while adding 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists. The NBA Finals MVP award was his first.
