CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - LeBron James fought back tears as he received his NBA Championship ring inside Quicken Loans arena Tuesday night.

"Without you 20,000 fans this would not be possible. This night, none of us will ever forget," said LeBron. "This is for you guys."

Though they didn't need much help, LeBron got the crowd hyped as he thanked fans for their support.

The entire team, coaches and some of the staff received their championship rings before the Cavs first championship banner was raised.

The Cleveland Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Golden State Warriors in last season's NBA Finals.

LeBron ended his speech by saying, "At this point if you not from here, lived here, play here, dedicate yourself to Cleveland then ahhhh, it makes no sense for you to live at this point," LeBron said.
