The 2014-2015 NBA season has finally come to a close, with Golden State rebounding from a 2-1 deficit to capture its first title in 40 years.

Here is a collection of the best Vines of the six-game series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. For bonus footage, check out the video player above to see the best vines from the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
LeBron James’s No-Look, Over-Head Bounce Pass
LeBron does at least 15 ridiculous things per game, but this pass to Timofey Mozgov could only be made by a person with eyes in the back of his head. That’s just an expression, but LeBron may have had surgery to implant rear-facing eyes.
Harrison Barnes Throws it Down
After exploding in the Western Conference Finals, the North Carolina product had a relatively quiet Finals. But this dunk over Mike Miller and Mozgov helped shift the momentum to Golden State during a pivotal Game 5 victory.
Matthew Dellavedova Alley-Oops It to LeBron James
Flight 23, please prepare for takeoff.
Steph Curry Turns Delly’s Ankles To Dust
After struggling against Dellavedova’s scrappy defense early in the series, Stephen Curry went into full shake and bake mode on the Cavs’ backup point guard during Game 5. This is just nasty.
The Lone Ranger Rides Alone
J.R. Smith leaving Quicken Loans Arena on his overboard was simultaneously the saddest and funniest image of all time.
One legend acknowledges another. Two of the greatest athletes who ever graced the hardwood in Cleveland, Ohio.
