Report: J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson Being Asked to Interview for 30 for 30 on 2016 Cavs

2 Min Read

The Cleveland Cavaliers broke a 52-year championship drought for the city of Cleveland by winning the 2016 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

As Cavs fans very well know, Cleveland overcame a 3-1 deficit against the 73-win Warriors in one of the greatest upsets in sports history.

Now, it appears as if ESPN is planning to make a documentary about the Cavs’ title run, as J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson reportedly have both been asked to interview for a 30 for 30 documentary.

Thompson and Smith both played key supporting roles to superstar LeBron James in the Cavs’ comeback.

Smith scored in double figures in the final three games of the series, while Thompson had a monster performance in Game 6, totaling 15 points and 16 rebounds.

Obviously, James’ iconic block on Andre Iguodala and Kyrie Irving’s game-winning 3-pointer in Game 7 sealed the deal for Cleveland to capture its first NBA championship in history.

While most of the 2016 title team has broken up, a documentary commemorating the historic performance would be must-watch television.

There is no doubt that Cavs fans would enjoy an inside look at the comeback that brought so much joy to the city.
