Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue stayed true to his roots Sunday night.
After the Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference finals in Boston, Lue, a former Raytown High School star, gave a shout-out to Kansas City, his hometown of Mexico, Mo., and Columbia.
Lue, who played at Nebraska and was with seven teams in an 11-year NBA career, coached the Cavaliers when they won the 2016 NBA Championship. After winning that title, Lue gave Mexico, Mo., a little love on national television.
This time, Lue opened by acknowledging three cities in Missouri when talking with ESPN on Sunday.
"First, I want to give a shout-out to Kansas City, Mo., you know that, to Mexico, Mo., Columbia, Mo., all my people back home," Lue said.

This made some people back in the Show-Me State happy.
