Talk about a class act! In the final seconds of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, even as he was about to lose, LeBron James made sure to congratulate Stephen Curry and the rest of the Golden State Warriors on their championship victory!
We got to hand it to Lebron James, 30. Though he and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers put up their best effort, the Golden State Warriors were the better team in the 2015 NBA Finals. Before King James left the court for the final time, he made a great show of sportsmanship, congratulating Stephen Curry, 27, on winning the championship!
During the final seconds of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, taking place on June 16, the Warriors were up by seven points and cruising to their first NBA Championship in forty years. The Cavs decided to replace LeBron for the final ten seconds, but before he left the court, LeBron made sure to give props to Steph Curry and his team.
LeBron walked up and shook Steph’s hand, bringing the Warrior’s star player in for a hug and a show of respect! That was a classy display of good sportsmanship from LeBron, whose performance in the NBA Finals was mind-blowingly good. However, it wasn’t enough to overcome the combined talent of the Warriors. The game ended with a score of 105-97, and the Warriors took home their first championship since 1975. And the crowd went wild!
As LeBron exited the court, the fans in attendance in Cleveland chanted “M-V-P” in appreciation for both LeBron’s performance during this legendary series and his classy of display of respect towards his fellow NBA players.
The real MVP of the 2015 NBA Finals was not LeBron James – it was Riley Curry, Stephen Curry’s daughter! After capturing everyone’s hearts with her post-game interview style, she joined her daddy in celebrating his Championship win! She knew who the star of the show was, because the little girl made sure to get her turn to party with the trophy!
