After a long lockout, NBA players take to the court for an exciting abbreviated season, with the Cleveland Cavaliers entering the fray under the leadership of veterans Antawn Jamison and Baron Davis. In the high-energy opening-night game, the Cavs don caveman garb to take on the Toronto Raptors in a shoe-squeaking, alley-ooping race for glory. A pair of hot rookies will try to hit their strides on the professional court, with Duke’s Kyrie Irving and Texas’ Tristan Thompson showcasing reverse jams. In February, the Miami Heat brings LeBron James back to Ohio for a match rife with more emotion than the doodles in Hamlet’s Trapper Keeper. Fellow Miami stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will back up LeBron as the Heat attempts to scorch the wily Cavaliers.
Since joining the NBA in 1970, the Cleveland Cavaliers have built up a passionate base of basketball fans throughout Ohio. The franchise has featured some of the most talented players of the 21st century, including a two-time NBA MVP and two Rookie of the Year-award winners. Wild crowds cheer on their team at Quicken Loans Arena, nicknamed The "Q" for its monthly "Laser Wristwatch Night" promotions.
