The Cavs won the 2016 NBA title against the Golden State Warriors with then-star player LeBron James. James has since left the Cavs to play for the Los Angelos Lakers.
Around 27,000 people work at Wright-Patt, making it the largest single-site employer in the state of Ohio. The base has an estimated $4.2-billion economic impact in Ohio.
