San Diego is now on the clock.

Thanks to the Cleveland Cavaliers 93-89 Game 7 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, San Diego has become the new city of sports infamy.

Before Sunday, the city of Cleveland's professional sports teams went a combined 147 'seasons' without a championship. With the Cavs securing the NBA Championship, the next city to find themselves in a championship-less drought is... you guessed it: San Diego.

Today, Union Tribune's Michael Gehlken sent out this nugget of information via Twitter:

As you can see, San Diego now holds that utterly disdainful spot that no city should have to endure. With the San Diego Padres seemingly already out of contention for championship contention, it's going to have to be the 110 'season' of San Diego sports and the Chargers to do it.

Following San Diego on the list are Buffalo (103 seasons), Minneapolis (91), and Milwaukee (90).

San Diego, this is one list you do not want to be at the top of.
