After a hard-fought seven-game series, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers bested Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors to win the NBA championship on Sunday night, bringing a pro sports title home to northern Ohio for the first time since 1964.
The contentious finals series sparked social media chatter with every game, but the Cavs’ victory brought Cleveland-born celebs out of the woodwork to celebrate their city ending its long-running championship drought.
“CHAMPIONS!!!! From CLEVELAND!!!” tweeted Price is Right host Drew Carey, who famously announced that “Cleveland Rocks” in the theme song of his self-titled sitcom. “#CAVS Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!”

Saturday Night Live star Vanessa Bayer shared her hopes for the Cavs earlier in the day, sharing a picture with the “two most important men in my life,” her father and James, with whom she co-starred in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck.
