Nike released an ad showing fans during the emotional final minutes leading up to the Cavaliers triumphant NBA victory Sunday .

The video gets close up and personal on tears that brim strong men's eyes as fans begin to realize — this could be it. Nike tries to capture the feel of those who waited, in some cases 52 years, for one shining moment.

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors, 93-89, breaking a 52-year-drought of championship victories in Cleveland. And the Cavs became the first team to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win it all in the NBA.
