Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert releases sneak peak of championship banner

Published Add your comment

We're just over a week away from the beginning of another NBA season and a special night for the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

As is the tradition in the league, the defending champions will open their campaign on a Tuesday night with a home encounter. While getting off to a winning start is important, the ring ceremony is the primary focus. 

The franchise will celebrate their incredible comeback win over the Golden State Warriors in last season's finals and will see their first championship banner lifted into the rafter of the Quicken Loans Arena. 

Ahead of the game that will see them face the revamped New York Knicks, majority owner Dan Gilbert released a sneak peak of the banner on his official Twitter page. 

The reaction on social media was brilliant with some fans still struggling to believe that the Cavaliers had won the Larry O'Brien trophy.

The ring ceremony is always an amazing night and it will be no different in Ohio. LeBron James will be experiencing his third - first with Cleveland - but for many players, it will be a new experience. 

However, the celebrations will end at tip off. The Cavs know they can't rest on the laurels and will want to be at their best from game one this year.
