A look back at the Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 championship: photos

CLEVELAND - It's been nearly a year since LeBron James chased down Andre Iguodala for The Block and Kyrie Irving sealed Game 7 with The Shot.

It's been nearly a year since fans filled E. 4th Street until 2 a.m., meaning places of employment saw a spike in "sick days" the next morning.

And it's been nearly a year since more than one million fans crammed the streets of Cleveland, hanging from parking garages and street signs to catch a glimpse of LeBron James rolling by in a Jag.

Now, a new mission begins Thursday as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors meet for the third straight time in the NBA Finals.

The stakes are higher than ever, as the Warriors work for redemption after blowing a 3-1 lead during last year's Finals. Meanwhile, James is playing at his peak as the Cavaliers aim to prove they're a repeat championship caliber team.

We can't wait for another wild Finals run that will hopefully lead to another title.

But first, let's take one last look back at the two greatest nights of our lives as Cleveland fans:
