Social media celebrates 4th anniversary of the Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA title

It's been four years since the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors to win Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

"CLEVELAND! THIS IS FOR YOU!"

It was June 19, 2016 that LeBron James shouted those famous words following the Cleveland Cavaliers' victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. That means that it's now been four years since the Cavs captured what was Cleveland's first major sports championship in 52 years, overcoming a 3-1 series deficit -- the first time that's ever happened in the history of the NBA Finals.

The Cavs, of course, look a lot different now, with James now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Kyrie Irving with the Brooklyn Nets and Kevin Love currently being Cleveland's only remaining member from the championship roster as Tristan Thompson and Matthew Dellavedova prepare to hit free agency. Nevertheless, that didn't stop social media from spending Friday morning reminiscing and still celebrating the Cavs' historic title.
