Kyrie Irving’s championship-sealing three needs a deep rewind | 2016 Cavaliers

The 2016 NBA finals gave internet commenters a simple, easy reply for any situation: “The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.” Oh yeah, and it also gave Cleveland its first championship since the ‘60s, quieted LeBron haters, momentarily broke Steph Curry, and gave Kyrie a moment of glory after he had been promised the world and then had to hand that world over to LeBron. Remember? The Cavs were like “sure we’ll build around you Kyrie, you’re our guy” and then LeBron said he was coming back to Cleveland, and then the Cavs were like “what’s a Kyrie???”.
The 2016 Finals were so good. I mean, it went to seven games, which is exciting enough! But there was so much more! In this video we relive every single part of the series, and everything that lead up to it too - from the Warriors’ insane record-setting seasons full of threes to LeBron’s chasedown blocks to the playoff groin shots. That’s right, groin shots, plural. Draymond Green was going through a stage.
And if you want to chit chat, we have a website dedicated to just that, head on over to

  • Thanks for tuning in, and thanks to everyone out there who requested this moment for a rewind. Now, personally, I prefer the moment that came two years later to end game one because it is hilarious and I am a dimwit. If you're like me and want to enjoy that, well, here you go: As always, if you want to chat with us more directly, feel free to join us over at where there's some very familiar pieces, some stuff that's a little weirder, and a whole lot more Jon. xoxo, Will

  • Why is this video edited like it’s Kyrie’s origin story? 😂 It shows all the reasons why Kyrie didn’t like playing behind Bron and wanted out of Cleveland. Seems like he’s a lot happier playing in Brooklyn where he can just do his thing and score.

  • It’s crazy how haters say Irving saved LeBron’s legacy. What they forget to realize is during the timeout, LeBron told Ty Lue to give Irving the last shot and let him dance. If there’s any superstar/one of the GOATs who trusts and believes in his teammates, it’s LeBron. Anyone should be lucky, happy, and ecstatic to play with him - Kyrie was a stubborn kid back then who wanted all the glory for himself, and didn’t have any respect.

  • Maybe my favorite of your episodes, specifically because I was locked into this story as it was all happening. Loved getting to see the Draymond flagrant points situation talked about succinctly, rather than nit picked to death the way first take and every sports channel did when it was happening. I only wish you'd shown Kevin Love going step for step with Steph for an amazing contest after Kyrie's three. To me, each member of the big three proved themselves in that final sequence. LeBlock, Kyrie's Three, Love's big-man-locks-down-mvp defense. They all did their jobs. Great video about this iconic moment, though. Keep it up y'all

  • So lemme get this str8. Game tied, Kyrie hit a 3. Clev is up by 3 92-89. But the final score is 93-89. Uuhhmmm, im beginning to think Kyrie made a 4-point play. Well did he? ....... someone pls tell me who accounted for the final point of the game. Cus if most ppl say that Kyries shot was the game winner. That means no other point(s) came after his 3point shot. So what gives??

    Wayne Jshynz HindsWayne Jshynz Hinds4 tháng trước
  • Everyone acts like the switch to steph was the best move when it really wasn't. By that point stephs D had gotten wayyy better and he'd be able to keep up better than someone who isn't as agile. Kyrie is quick but switched to the quickest Warriors player who had developed his D into above average D. And steph plays the ball perfectly. The shot was the hardest contested shot you could take and Curry literally missed the block by an inch.. Kyrie wasn't clutch he just got lucky.

  • If the Warriors had won they would have been the first four-pete since Bill Russell and the Celtics won 8 rings in a row from 1959 to 1966. They would have been the undisputed most dominant team since then as they would have had the team with the most wins all time that won a ring and then added an MVP that offseason

The league did everything they could to get some chips for the chosen one. Ten chances and 4 rings makes you a loser overall. Goat talk is hilarious.
