OAKLAND, Calif. (Reuters) - Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals following his team's 93-89 championship-clinching win over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.

For James, who was the catalyst behind his Cavs' remarkable rally from a 3-1 series deficit, it marks the third time he has captured the award after winning it with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013.
