SPORTS

A competitive spirit drives what we do. In fact, it’s in our DNA. Whether it’s on the court or in the boardroom, the same discipline, spirit and drive that moves all of us is a core principle of our culture, inspiring us all to do more and be more every day.

The Cleveland Cavaliers organization is committed to delivering a championship-caliber experience both on and off the court that will positively impact and elevate the Cleveland community, the region and fans everywhere. The Cavaliers organization is led by Chairman Dan Gilbert, CEO Len Komoroski, President Business Operations Nic Barlage and GM Koby Altman. The organization continues to make record-level investments in their player roster and has also served a catalytic role in the continued growth and vitality of downtown Cleveland as it becomes a place to live, work and play 24/7. The Cavs organization is also deeply committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children and families in Northeast Ohio with a full slate of community outreach initiatives, including a deep level of engagement and investments to eliminate blight in Cleveland and its neighborhoods.

The team is led by Head Coach Tyronn Lue and a roster that includes five-time NBA All-Star Kevin Love and NBA Champions Tristan Thompson, JR Smith and Channing Frye. The team also features the eighth pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, Collin Sexton. In 2016, the Cavaliers delivered Cleveland its first championship in 52 years and became the only team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to become NBA Champions.

The Cavs play their home games at Quicken Loans Arena – aka The Q. The Q is currently undergoing a major renovation to update the nearly 24-year old arena, home to over 200 diverse events that draw over two million people downtown each year. The project is a partnership between the City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County and the Cavaliers that will modernize the venue to maintain its world-class status, enhance the fan experience, and continue to provide a positive impact for the city of Cleveland, the community and neighborhoods and the region over the long-term. The transformation of Quicken Loans Arena will be completed for the start of the Cavaliers 2019-2020 NBA season. To learn more and view renderings of the project, visit TheQTransformation.com.
