June 22 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
Fifty-two years after the city of Cleveland saw its last pro sports championship parade, their prodigal son has returned from Oakland, California, with the Larry O'Brien trophy and the severed head of NBA's reigning MVP. LeBron has proven himself to be the ultimate warrior, and the exuberant people of northeast Ohio will shower him in confetti in homage.

Ironically, 15 seconds of silent nodding probably captures this historic, emotional moment better than any words could have. In fact, a long, painful silence is the perfect metaphor for the city's championship drought. Well played, SportsCenter. You've managed to entertain us with your technical mishaps while making salient points about the magnitude of the Cleveland Cavaliers' epic 2016 NBA Finals victory.
You can watch the entire parade live streaming in player below...
