LeBron James, Cavaliers celebrate sweep in a cold tub

Wednesday May 27th, 2015

The Cleveland Cavaliers made short work of the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference finals, concluding the sweep with a 118–88 victory on Tuesday night.

With the victory the team will get a nice, long rest until the NBA Finals begin on June 4, so the team started its recovery immediately following the game with a celebratory cold tub party.

LeBron James joined Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Kendrick Perkins in the recovery pool and toasted their victory with champagne and Chedda Da Connect's "Flicka Da Wrist."
