LeBron James Trolls Golden State With "Ultimate Warrior" Shirt

Let the trolling begin!

It doesn't get much better than this. 


The Cavaliers finally touched down in Cleveland after coming back from a 3-1 deficit against the Warriors. Making history is reason enough for a little gloating here and there.
