LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers holds up the Larry O'Brien Trophy after the 2016 NBA Finals Game Seven against the Golden State Warriors on...

After returning home to Cleveland to chase a title with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, the King was in for it, facing a new beast in the Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry and company lit up the NBA. And they’d dominate a hobbled Cavs team in the 2015 NBA Finals.

The Warriors secured the best record in NBA history at 73-9 and they were the overwhelming favorites to beat the Cavs in the Finals rematch. But LeBron had his best Finals, ever. Down 3-1, LeBron willed his team to win 2 straight games and force game 7 with the help of Kryie and co.
