Watch From Where It All Began...
THE EARLY YEARS
From the inception of the team to Mr. Cavalier Austin Carr and the Miracle of Richfield, the "Early Years" set the stage for our franchise.
THE COLISEUM ERA
For 20 years, the Richfield Coliseum was home to some of the franchise's most historic moments including memorable playoff victories.
THE GUND ERA
The Cavs' new home in the mid-90s was also home to new and exciting faces like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Terrell Brandon and Shawn Kemp.
THE NEW WINE & GOLD ERA
Throughout the 2000s, the Wine & Gold were feared on the court with multiple playoff appearances and an Eastern Conference championship in 2007.
THE REBUILD & CHAMPIONSHIP ERA
In 2011, the Cavs started a long process that ultimately flourished into four-straight Eastern Conference championships from 2015-2018 and the franchise's first NBA Championship in 2016.
