A 52-year major sports championship drought ended Sunday night in Cleveland, when the Cavaliers won game 7 of the NBA finals against the Golden State Warriors.
 
Headed by Lebron James, who returned to his home state and the Cavaliers only two summers ago, the team on Sunday brought Cleveland its first big league sports title since 1964.
 
The game also ended a record-breaking year for the Warriors and its star, Stephen Curry.
 
 
Social media blew up with reactions to the close 93-89 game – one even President Barack Obama commented on, tweeting, “What a game and what a series for the @Cavs. Happy to see@KingJames bring it home for Cleveland!”
 
Sports journalists, current and former NBA players, as well as fans also reacted. See some of the Twitter comments below.
 
HBO's Bill Simmons tweeted about Golden State player Draymond Green, who opened the first two quarters with 22 points, six rebounds and five assists, according to Bleacher Report .
