In game seven, James scored 27 points, nabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 11 assists. For his astonishing performance James took home the MVP trophy.

The MVP and his teammates brought home the Larry O'Brien Trophy to more than 20,000 people who were waiting for the plane at the Cleveland airport.

According to Cleveland.com, James told the crowd, "I still can't believe it. I haven't slept. I feel like I've been walking on air for 20 hours."

Kyrie Irving also played a huge role in the game.

He scored 26 points, including the go-ahead three pointer over Stephen Curry with 53 seconds left in the game.

James also posted this video to his Instagram account after the win, telling the trophy that it has been gone way too long.
