Change came Monday morning in the Philippines, as we watched the NBA Finals live—one that ended with the Cleveland Cavaliers finally clinching that title after 52 years. We could just imagine being seated inside the Oracle Arena to witness history, but the commotion that emanated with everyone of us seated around our screens at home, some sports bar, or within our office space would have had the same level of tumult.

Many of our favorite athletes and celebs were the same, even taking to Instagram their love for… King James. Apparently, a lot of them cheered for one of the most hated players of the planet. In the end, they went all out in declaring love for the new champ.

Congrats to the Cavs, and to all their fans!

At first, you'd notice a few of the most influential people…

Then, you realize, there are more of them who are just fans. From former collegiate stars…
