Cleveland, Let's Bring It.

That's Richard Jefferson's message to fans today, and says the Cavaliers need them now more than ever.

The 15-year NBA veteran wrote a letter in The Player's Tribune about everything from how "Lil' Kev" was born, to so-called team controversies and his nerves before Game 6.

Right now I’m at my computer. I’m wired. It’s the night before the biggest game of my career and probably the biggest game in Cavs history. I’m finding it hard to relax and wind down. All I can think about is the sound of the Q on Thursday night. The last home game of the season.
He also talks about Cleveland fans, and how we're unlike any in the league:

Everyone knows Cleveland’s sports history. But unlike the Cubs or the Red Sox before their titles, Cleveland’s lack of championships isn’t accompanied by a sense of misery. It’s not fake. It’s not, “We’ll get it next year.” It’s, We can do this. Let’s do this.
He finishes the op-ed with a simple message:

"This has been one hell of a ride. Let's keep it going."
