LeBron James has been what some would call a miracle worker since returning to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers starting with the 2014-15 season. When King James left Cleveland in 2010 for Miami, he led the Miami Heat to unprecedented success in Heat franchise history by reaching four straight NBA Finals, winning two of those series. While Miami was riding high, Cleveland was floundering with 19, 21, 24 and 33 wins in each of the four seasons James was with Miami.

When LeBron returned to Cleveland, he instantly ignited the city of Cleveland and the Cavaliers franchise, leading them to four straight NBA Finals, winning the elusive title in 2015-16 against the might Golden State Warriors. Despite winning the title for his beloved Cleveland, his greatest accomplishment might have been this past season when he willed the Cavaliers to another finals appearance, his eighth in a row, putting him in elite company with K.C. Jones and Frank Ramsey and only surpassed by Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn and Bill Russell for most consecutive NBA Finals appearances.

Ironically, it was the Boston Celtics that provided LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers the most resistance on the way to the 2018 Finals. With a young, talented group of Jaylen Brown, Jason Tatum and Terry Rozier, the Celtics led Cleveland 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals, but the dominant and unstoppable LeBron James poured in 46 points in Game 6 in Cleveland and 35 points in the deciding Game 7 to push the Cavaliers to their fourth straight finals his eighth straight.

Offered here is the road burgundy Cleveland Cavaliers jersey worn by LeBron James during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Bank Garden in Boston. James scored 15 points in the Cavaliers 108-83 loss, but was ever stoic in his post-game press conference, showing no signs of panic, which he proved that he had his team ready to go the full distance. This Nike jersey features “CLEVELAND” sewn across the chest in gold tackle twill, with his number “23” sewn below in navy and gold tackle twill. The Nike logo and Goodyear Tire logo are also embroidered on the upper chest. The Nike tag with the “LENGTH +1” and year flags are sewn on the bottom front left tag. Also hand written on the tag is “5/13”, the night of Game 1 and spelled out in gold above the tag is “ALL FOR ONE. ONE FOR ALL”. The back of the jersey has “JAMES” sewn on in gold tackle twill and “23” sewn on in navy and gold tackle twill. The NBA logo is embroidered above the name and on the blue collar is a gold patch with “1” signifying how many titles the Cavaliers have won. This jersey displays light game and comes with a LOA from The MeiGray Group, who have authenticated this jersey to Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 1.
