The Cleveland Cavaliers became of part of the NBA in 1970 as an expansion team.
Over the years, the Cavs have had their highs and lows. Their highs included three
Central Division Championships in 1976, 2009 and 2010. During these years,
Cleveland Cavaliers tickets were highly sought after.
The first division title was made with the help of Nate Thurmond. The coach, Bill
Fitch, received the Coach of the Year Award that year. However, following that year,
there were several years of hardships for the team. By the year 1986, the Cavs had
players like Brad Daugherty, who was a five-time NBA All Star, Mark Price, Ron
Harper and Larry Nance. With a coach named Lenny Wilkens, any Cleveland
Cavaliers tickets purchased allowed you to witness 8 playoff seasons in 9 years.
After that playoff streak came to an end, another period of lows for the Cavaliers fell
upon the team. Excitement returned with the purchase of Cleveland Cavaliers
tickets when the Cavs drafted a player named LeBron James.
LeBron truly brought high-flying skills to the Cavaliers’ games. However, one thing
Lebron never brought to Cleveland was an NBA championship. Although they made
it to the NBA Finals in 2007, the exciting season ended in a thump when the Cavs
were swept in the finals. The Cavs had another brief and futile play-off appearance
the following year. So close but yet so far—- left the fans itching for a championship.
However the big question was will Lebron even return to the team?
Through the years the Cleveland Cavaliers tickets granted you access into the
Cleveland Arena (1970-1974), Coliseum at Richfield (1974-1994) and currently the
Quicken Loans Arena, which was formerly called Gund Arena (1994-present).
Cleveland Cavaliers tickets are now allows you to see Moon-dog, their current team
mascot. Moon-dog is infamous for his behind-the-back shot from half-court. This
stunning shot awarded him a trip to the NBA All-Star game in 2004. The Cavs also
have a second mascot, Sir CC. Sir CC is a Three Musketeer-like character. He made
his debut in 2010. Sir CC and Moon-dog now team up and provide the game time
entertainment for all Cleveland Cavaliers tickets holders.
All hope for a championship run was lost when Lebron James announced he would
be joining the Miami Heat team as opposed to staying with the Cavaliers. Needless
to say, the fans were furious. The Cavs fans are true and value their Cleveland
Cavaliers tickets. However, the quick departure of Lebron James has left a sour taste
in their mouths. It is what it is, they say. They are now trudging forward with new
coach, Byron Scott. Kyrie Irving, 2011, Rookie of the Year has also raised the hopes
of the fans. They have great expectations that the Cleveland Cavaliers tickets value
will rise again and the Cavs will return to be a playoff contention team. They hope
that the rise will eventually culminate into a NBA finals championship. Hopefully
Cleveland Cavaliers tickets will sour again. There is a lot of work to be done.
11-26-12: The cavs are yet another young team who will be missing their best player for a good amount of time. Kyrie Irving, the team’s all-star point guard is out with a broken finger. It would be safe to assume this team is headed toward the lottery once again as they continue to rebuild.
