Look: The Cavs Trolled the Warriors in Epic Fashion With Their Championship Rings

Check out this subtle detail in the jewelry.

Published October 26, 2016

LeBron James denied trolling the Golden State Warriors during the Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade this past June when he rocked an 'Ultimate Warrior' vintage WWE t-shirt.

Well, it's going to be hard for King James and the Cavs to dismiss that they're trolling the Warriors this time.

On Tuesday night, the Cavs were presented with their championship rings during an on-court ceremony at the Quicken Loans Arena before they stomped out the New York Knicks.

Immediately, it was obvious that the rings are larger-than-life iced-out rocks.

What wasn't so obvious was the hardware's rather subtle trolling job of the Warriors.

As Cavs forward Richard Jefferson pointed out on his Snapchat account, the back of the team's championship ring features tiny multi-colored jewels that illustrate how Cleveland became the first squad in NBA Finals history to successfully come back from a 1-3 deficit and win the title. The Cavs are represented by the red jewels, as you'll notice the final three spots represent Game 5, 6 and 7 of their Finals victories.

By doing that, the Cavs pull off the ultimate troll of the Warriors, who lost their 3-1 Finals edge and had to watch King James and his team celebrate on their court in Oakland.

The Warriors will never live that down.

Their monumental collapse is now etched in stone in more ways than one.
