Cleveland Cavaliers Brief History

This franchise was born back in 1970 as an NBA expansion team.

The team did horribly during their first season, losing their first fifteen games, and then they continued to struggle during the years to come.

The most emblematic player for this franchise is LeBron James, who entered the team after being selected as the top overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft.

Their first Finals appearance was back in 2007, but the team failed to make it to the most important game of the season for the next three seasons.

This lack of achievements pushed LeBron out of the franchise in 2010, although the player returned in 2014, allowing the Cavs to acquire their only championship to date, obtained in 2016.
