LeBron James led all players in the NBA Finals in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocked shots, and became just the third player ever to record a triple double in a Finals Game 7 (together with the Lakers Jerry West in 1969 and James Worthy in 1988).
And, oh yeah, James helped the Cleveland Cavaliers become the first team ever to overcome from a 3-1 deficit in a Finals series. Not surprisingly, social media blew up with praise for the unanimous NBA Finals MVP as he slumped to the Oracle Arena court in victory last night.
