The Cleveland Cavaliers are NBA champions for the first time, LeBron James is an NBA champion for the third time, so is James Jones, and pretty much everything going on at Oracle Arena reeks of happiness for the Cavs.
 
The celebrations were pretty great, as you can imagine. While fans went wild back home in Cleveland, celebrating the city’s first major pro sports title since the Browns (!) won it in 1964, the Cavs themselves had quite the fiesta in the locker room. They are the first team ever to come back from being down 3–1 in a Finals series, and did it against the 73-win Warriors, no less.
 
We’ve rounded up some of the best moments from the Cavs’ postgame scene. Check them out below. Game highlights are here.

Alright, first things first, Kevin Love did the "Stone Cold" Steve Austin beer smash. He’s probably wanted to do this since he was 12.

The Cavs popped champagne, as you would imagine.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Enjoy these. They speak for themselves.

LeBron James was named Finals MVP, posting a triple double in Game 7 after scoring 41 points in Games 5 and 6.
