- LeBron James wept while Cleveland cheered. The prodigal son who left for Miami in 2010 to win two NBA titles, then returned home in 2014 vowing to end a major sport title drought that had haunted Cleveland since 1964, delivered on his promise Sunday when the Cleveland Cavaliers beat Golden State 93-89 in the decisive seventh game of the NBA Finals. "It's the greatest feeling in the world," James said. "I dreamed about it, envisioned it and to see it come true is just plain beautiful."
