LeBron James is on top of the world right now.

After finally receiving his Cleveland Cavaliers championship ring, he put in a huge MVP-calibre performance as the defending champions overcame the New York Knicks with relative ease.

James produce a triple-double at the Quicken Loans Arena as the Cavs went 1-0 on the season, and to top it off the Cleveland Indians took an early advantage in their MLB World Series against the Chicago Cubs.


Speaking to the NBA after last night's game, James spoke about the experience of having a ring ceremony in his home state, saying it was an 'unbelievable moment'.

He went on to praise the Cleveland fans who had remained loyal to the organisation through all of their hardship and produced his best Ric Flair impression to express his feelings.

"It's an unbelievable moment man," the three-time champion said. "Our fans deserve everything and for us to be able to have game one here - ring night - right across the street, you know, with the Indians in the World Series game one it's the perfect night for a fan and we're happy that we can just give it to them.

They've been always supportive of us and tonight they showed it again; electrifying. You know, as Ric Flair would say: 'WOOOO.'"
