2010 to 2020 has been a great decade for the world of sports. We are more than halfway in 2020 and we’ve already seen so much greatness and victories. If we were to ask you, what do you think are the greatest moments in sports over the last decade, what would you say?
For now, here are our top picks.
2016 NBA Finals
The rivalry between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors was a spectacle to see from 2015 to 2019. The Cavaliers led by Lebron James only managed to win one championship, but it was one to remember. The Cavaliers were down 3-1 against the Warriors and Stephen Curry.
The Cavaliers managed to bounce back and on game 7, it was a close match. No one can say who was going to win but James changed all of that with a chase-down block. What seemed to be an easy bucket for the Warriors ended up as the nail in the coffin for them.
James out of nowhere swooped in to block a shot to be delivered by Andre Iguodala. From then on, the Cavaliers had their momentum and they sealed the deal. It was a momentous moment because winning the championship means James finally fulfilled his promise to Cleveland.
Tiger Woods Masters Comeback
Tiger Woods is without a doubt one of the most controversial athletes of this generation. But, no one can deny that he is also one of the greatest Golfers not only during the last decade but throughout history.
Everyone thought Woods’ career was over after several scandals, issues, and even an arrest in 2017. In 2018, Woods went back at it and he finished strong. On April 14, 2019, he won the Masters golf tournament again. It was magnificent to witness and brought Woods back to his glory days.
Simone Biles Dominates Olympics
During the Olympic Games Rio 2016, the world saw a campaign like no other in gymnastics. Biles established the US on a whole new level in that year. She won gold medals in team events as well as individual gold in floor exercise, vault, and all around.
Biles is now one of the most decorated gymnasts not only in the US but across the globe. After she ran in the 2016 Olympics, she dominated world championships next all over the world. The event may not have happened in the US, but it was certainly a massive victory for the country and its athletes.
Super Bowl LI
The Super Bowl match between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons was one for the history books. In the initial stages of the match, the Patriots were a disaster with the Falcons leading 28 – 3 halfway through.
What was a losing fight turned out to beone of the biggest comebacks ever. The Patriots scored 25 points in the final minutes of regulation. They then forced the game in overtime and took home the victory.
