With three rookies expected to see plenty of action this year, former Michigan head coach John Beilein could be the perfect man to lead the Cavs into what they hope is a new period of success post-LeBron James. Beilein was hired this offseason and has some nice, young pieces to mold. With that in mind, the Cavs had three first-round selections in this year’s draft – Darius Garland (5), Dylan Windler (26), and Kevin Porter Jr. (30). Garland will be evaluated at the point guard spot, along with Collin Sexton and Brandon Knight. Veterans Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson remain as stalwarts for the young players.
The Cavs’ downtown home was renamed from Quicken Loans Arena to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, which is a subsidiary of Quicken Loans. It’s part of a $185 million renovation that added thousands of glass panels and over 42,000 square feet of public space to the venue. The Bacardi Ocho Signature Lounge is called the crown jewel of the updated arena. Located across from the Cavs locker room, you can get glimpses of the team coming through the hallway and into the tunnel to the arena. The Huntington Legends Club provides private theater box seats for the game, along with private dining tables for food and drink. These come in either four- or eight-seat plans, depending on your needs.
