The Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the most dominant NBA teams in recent history, winning their 3rd championship this year. The team has won 2 consecutive championships and 4 Eastern Conference titles over the last 5 years. The Cavs have also had many individual successes with players like LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, and others contributing to the team’s success. With such an impressive record of accomplishments, it is no wonder that there will be a ring ceremony for all members on Wednesday night.
What time is Cavs ring ceremony
The Cavs will be raising their first championship banner on October 17th, 7 pm/et and will be starting the season with a ring ceremony. The team has had many individual successes with players like LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, and others contributing to the team’s success.
How much does the ring cost
The player’s rings will be priced at $1,497. The ring features 213 diamonds and 14 genuine green emeralds.
How many fans will attend the ring ceremony
There will be a total of 20,000 fans in attendance for the ring ceremony.
The team will wear special uniforms
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a long-standing tradition of wearing black uniforms to home games. In fact, the team adopted black as their primary color in 1965 as a symbol of solidarity with players from other teams who were protesting racial inequality.
The color was also used as a way to represent the city’s iconic electric trolley cars, which were painted black up until 1954.
This tradition will continue during Wednesday night’s ring ceremony, as the Cavs will be wearing their “familiar” and “dreaded” black uniforms for the first time this year.
All for one and one for all
While the Cavs player rings are truly unique and exclusive to the team, over 2,000 full and part-time Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena “Team Behind the Team,” members will also receive their very own Championship Ring courtesy of Dan Gilbert and the Cavs ownership group. The rings are similar to and inspired by, the player rings in their design and related story elements. This ring program is a showing of appreciation that celebrates and rewards the hard work and dedication from everyone across the organization, no matter what their specific role was, in the Cavaliers championship journey.
The 2016 NBA Finals was the championship series of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) 2015-2016 season and the conclusion of the 2016 playoffs. The Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the defending NBA champion and Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors four games to three in a rematch of the previous year’s Finals. The Cavaliers became the fourth team to win the championship after losing the first two games, joining the 1969 Boston Celtics, 1977 Portland Trailblazers, and 2006 Miami Heat. It was the 14th rematch of the previous NBA Finals in history, and the first Finals since 2008 in which the number one seed in each conference met. It was the second straight rematch in back-to-back years, as the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs played each other in 2013 and 2014. Cleveland’s LeBron James was named the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP). James won the Finals MVP award unanimously, receiving all 11 Finals MVP votes.
The win by the Cavaliers was the first major professional sports championship won by a team based in Cleveland since 1964, and the first-ever championship won by the Cavaliers franchise. NBA Finals MVP winner LeBron James propelled the Cavaliers to the historic comeback, completing an all-time great Finals performance in which he became the first player in NBA history to lead all players in a playoff series in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.
