LeBron James did it. He f***ing did it. The hometown hero brought the city of Cleveland an NBA championship — their FIRST NBA championship. And not only that, but this is the first championship win for the city across all sports in 52 years!

That’s over 50 years, people. FIVE decades. Do you know what has happened between 52 years ago and now? A LOT.

50 years ago, there was no Internet as we know it now. There were no social media trolls. Color TVs were considered a “luxury.” Cell phones did not exist. Hell, you probably didn’t exist 50 years ago.

So, do you know what the city of Cleveland did when their beloved Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors to win the 2016 NBA Finals? Can you guess how Cleveland reacted when they realized that their 5-decade long drought of taking L after L after L after L in every single sport? CAN YOU IMAGINE?

Well, you don’t have to, thanks to Twitter. Based on a number of tweets from late Sunday night (Jun 19)/early Monday morning, the city of Cleveland lost their fucking minds, yo. LIKE. I MEAN, LIKE, SERIOUSLY.

They poured into the streets. They hijacked (or “borrowed“) and jumped on top of moving fire trucks and ambulances. They destroyed poor, defenseless police cars. They … completely lost their shit.

Take a look:



If you have been riding for Cleveland all this time (and aren’t just hopping on the bandwagon, because LeBron) … then you deserve a ring too!

Congrats, Cleveland.
