According to the bookmakers in Las Vegas, just mere interest from LeBron brought them down to 10/1 to win the 2015 NBA Championship.

At the time this made them the third favourite to win it all behind the defending champions the San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls.

Once he officially returned home, the Cavaliers jumped further ahead and became the favourites for the title next year.

Following the signings of Love, Marion and contract extension for Kyrie Irving they've become the overwhelming favourites.

So not only will the Cleveland natives be desperate to attend their home games this season, but many rival and neutral fans will be wanting to gain access to the Quicken Loans Arena.

No easy access

It won't be easy for any NBA fans to gain access to the Cavaliers home games next however with their new ticket system.

It was announced on Friday that as a result of their ticket demand being at an all-time high, they will have a new ticket system.

The days of waiting in line for tickets appears to have long since past, even going online to order tham appears to have moved on.

The Cavaliers have now implemented a new lottery system which will aim to give every fan a chance to see their heroes next season.

It won't have full control over every game attendant, just those looking to attend a single game.

Even then, out of 50,000 tickets per game set aside for individual game attendants, around 1,200 will be given to the lottery system.

It is an unheard of move in the NBA and it will be interesting to see just how the Cavaliers do in trying to manage their new fan demand.
