Watch: The Cavs' Turn Up Was on a Different Level After Their Title Win

The city of Cleveland is lit right about now.

Published June 20, 2016

Overcome with emotion.

That's the best way to describe how LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers felt Sunday night, realizing he had fulfilled his promise to deliver the city its first major sports championship in 52 years with a Game 7 NBA Finals' victory over the Golden State Warriors.

After balling up on the court in tears, King James and the Cavs' champagne celebration in the locker room of Oracle Arena got turnt to another level.

Kevin Love did his best Stone Cold Steve Austin/WWE impersonation before LeBron showered Kyrie Irving with championship champagne — Moët Nectar Imperial Rosé’s newest Ohio City Bottles, to be exact.

And another angle.

And the turn up was only beginning, as the celebration spilled from the locker room at Oracle to a Las Vegas nightclub with J.R. Smith leading the way. Hey, it's only right.

Across the country, Cavs' fans in The Land followed the players' lead, giving it up for their hometown hero and his fulfilled promise to deliver a title to the city.

And you already know, as championship-deprived as Cleveland has been up until this point, they're going to turn all the way loose during Wednesday's championship parade.
