Tom Brady and the New England Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51, and countless NBA players gave their take on greatness. 

Since June of 2016, we’ve seen four massive comebacks across basketball, baseball and football. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers kicked it all off when they fought back from being down 3-1 against the Golden State Warriors last summer (making the Warriors the first team ever to blow that lead in the NBA Finals).

Following that comeback, the Cleveland Indians were on the wrong end of a collapse in October, and the Chicago Cubs also came back from being down three games to one and snapped their 108-year drought without a championship.

Sandwiched in between all of these comebacks is the Villanova Wildcats, who were crowned National Champions after beating the Carolina Tar Heels on Kris Jenkins’ buzzer-beater last April.

Most recently, we had the College Football Championship. The Alabama Crimson Tide jumped out to an early 14-0 lead on the Clemson Tigers, and Deshaun Watson rallied his team to the 35-31 victory.

Tom Brady, whose final performance was the football equivalent of what James did in last year’s Finals, finished with 466 passing yards and brought New England back from a 25-points deficit — twenty-five points. After watching what was the greatest Super Bowl ever, James (and J.R. Smith) took to Uninterrupted to congratulate the greatest quarterback ever:

Kobe Bryant then made sure that no one forgot about Deflategate.

Of course, this game wouldn’t be complete without a couple of “3-1” jokes paying homage to the Warriors.
