It will take a warrior effort to stop LeBron James.

The 2015 NBA Finals will create a legendary moment for a title starved city no matter who wins. Can Golden State win a title for first time in 40 years, secured by the regular season most valuable player, or will Akron’s favorite son do the same for Cleveland, Ohio? Cleveland has not won a title in any sport since Jim Brown led the Browns to the NFL Championship in 1964.
