Lebron and team landing in Cleveland with the Trophy

In the meantime, LeBron found some time to settle the scores with his critics. He did it by using an image he uploaded to his Instagram account, where he appears with the championship trophy. King James wrote: ” They said u lost a step, wasn’t explosive as once was, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don’t have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired.”

The historic championship season of Cleveland also included the exchange of coaches when Tyronn Lue has replaced Coach David Blatt, and LeBron did not miss the opportunity to bite back by quoting his naysayers: “he got the coach fired, players traded, won’t work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won’t work, love your teammates too much, there’s no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown… But guess what – THAT’S NONE OF MY BUSINESS.”

LeBron also said: “When I decided to leave Miami – and I’m not going to mention names – some said I did the biggest mistake of my career. And it hit me. I know it was an emotional moment when I left, and they just told me I made a big mistake. That was my motivation.” The new champions returned to Cleveland after stopping in Las Vegas, where the players continued off the celebrations. At the time Smith had already forgotten what happened at the press conference and poured a bottle of champagne on a girl at the club in Sin City. After the celebrating in the night, in the morning LeBron and his friends flew back to Cleveland and the official championship parade that was scheduled to take place on Wednesday.

“I want to congratulate Cleveland, the professional staff, the players and the fans” said the mayor of Cleveland, Frank Jackson, “They did it against all odds. The strength and determination they have shown throughout the season, the playoffs and the seventh game, represent the city and its people.”

LeBron, who brought the championship to the place where he was born, said: “We know what this city has gone through in terms of sports. We were in the finals in 2007, last season we lost 4:2 in the finals series and there’s a lot more stories. No matter what the city teams had done, the fans continued to support us and they deserve this. It was for them.”
