Photos and videos from Cavs victory parade in Cleveland

Wow! What a celebration. After 52 years it shouldn’t be surprising that an estimated 1.3 million people turned out on a sun-drenched summer day in Cleveland to celebrate this amazing Cavs championship.

There are so many amazing photos and videos from that here. Here are some that were shared on social media:

Lebron James took this video and shared it on Instagram. The 360-view is pretty amazing and captures all the bedlam, including all the people perched on the parking garage.

Cavs stun Warriors and bring title to Cleveland!!!!

Wow. What a game! What a series! What a celebration!

It’s been 52 years since Cleveland celebrated a major sports championship.

The Cavs were facing a team that had set a record with 73 regular season wins.

The Cavs were down 3-1, and no team had ever come back from such a deficit in the NBA Finals.

After Game 4, the arrogance of the Golden State Warriors bubbled over as they began to mock and question the manhood of Lebron James.

Lebron flat in opening loss

Well that was a buzzkill.

Lebron James is a great player, but we’ve all known for years that he doesn’t always react well to pressure. We all remember the Boston meltdown here in Cleveland, even if the national media chose to ignore it. Then of course we had Lebron’s Finals “performance” against the Dallas Mavericks.

Of course, we’ve also seen Lebron when he gets angry and plays like a beast.

Lebron lets the moment get to him sometimes, and unfortunately that happened again last night. With all the hype and hero-worship centered around his return, Lebron had a lot on his mind and it showed. He was terrible last night. He couldn’t shoot and rarely got aggressive on the offensive end. He had eight turnovers!

Of course, this is a new team, and Lebron thrives on working with and setting up his teammates. They’re still learning how to play together, so the inevitable mistakes just made Lebron even less comfortable as the night progressed.

It’s one game. This team will learn how to play together, and the only thing that matters is how they play together next spring in the playoffs and hopefully the Finals.

Bill Simmons looks forward to Cavs home games

Bill Simmons returned from his ESPN suspension with his annual NBA rankings, and this comment caught my attention:

[E]very 2015 Cavs home game is going to be appointment viewing. Even the ones against Philly and Utah. Everyone forgets how fantastic their home games were in 2009 and 2010, how much energy ripped through that building every night, and how LeBron always seemed to feed off his hometown peeps. They went 39-2 at home in 2009 with inferior talent, a clueless coach and a roster that couldn’t do 40 percent of the stuff that this 2015 Cavs team can do. These LeBron 2.0 home games are going to be a borderline religious experience. I really believe that. It’s just one of many reasons why they’re our 2015 League Pass champs.

The “clueless coach” line cracked me up. I still can’t believe I actually supported the idea of Mike Brown coming back here in 2013. While he was clueless in 2009 as Simmons pointed out, some of us didn’t realize just how bad Brown could be as a head coach until last season, which is one of the worst coaching jobs I’ve ever seen in Cleveland (and that’s saying something!).

In his article, Simmons also raves about David Blatt, so let’s hope he’s right about that one. So far Blatt is living up to his reputation as an innovative coach.

Karma is a bitch!

LeBron James chokes in the NBA Finals. You couldn’t have written a better script for Cleveland fans who were punked by this jerk with The Decision. Karma is a bitch!
