The Cleveland Cavaliers are a basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio. Founded in 1970, the team plays in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Cavaliers are known for their festive fans and star player LeBron James, who led the team to their only NBA title in 2016. Prior to James' return in 2014, the Cavaliers had endured a long string of unsuccessful seasons.
However, with the arrival of the Akron native, the team improved rapidly and reached the NBA Finals four consecutive years from 2015 to 2018. In 2016, the Cavaliers won their first World Series, defeating the Golden State Warriors in an epic comeback. After James' second retirement, the Cavaliers went through a new era for the reconstruction. However, the team has amassed promising young talents like Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, which has led to new hope for the future. Cavaliers fans remain loyal to the team and look forward to the next era of success.
