Recently, in one of the greatest upsets in basketball finals history, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Championship which I watched live, and it was quite a thrilling game (you can see the highlights in the videos at the bottom of this story.) The Cleveland Cavaliers were down 3 games to 1 to the Golden State Warriors, and managed to come back to win the Finals, which has never happened before in NBA Finals history. LeBron James is arguably the driving force that led the Cavalier to their Championship in 2016, and he is pictured below getting around two Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.
LeBron James has won three NBA Championships in his amazing career (2012, 2103, 2016) as well as four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013). LeBron James is widely considered to be one of the best basketball players in the history of the game.
I first noticed that LeBron James was wearing his Rolex Day-Date at the 2016 NBA Championship Parade when Hodinkee recently published a story on the subject, which included the photo below of LeBron James wearing his 41MM yellow gold Rolex Day-Date II.

LeBron James was not the only Cleveland Cavaliers team member rockin' his yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date, as I could not help but notice at least four team-members were also wearing yellow-gold Day-Date models including Mo Smith, Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson. Below we see Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert sporting his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

In this next image we see Tristan Thompson, who wearing his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date on June 22, 2016 at Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade.
Historically Rolex has always been extremely secretive and discreet, and no journalists in the past have ever been invited "INSIDE ROLEX" to explore and report on all four Rolex Manufacturing faclities in Switzerland.
In November 2013, this changed when Rolex invited Jake to take an unprecdented journey into the heart of Rolex to learn and report on everything he witnessed and learned.
This Super-Detailed 3 Part Story is a "MUST READ" story for anybody who wants to understand what really makes Rolex tick.
