The Larry O’ Brien championship trophy is going #AllForOhio, visiting Cavs fans in Canton, Akron, Columbus, and Youngstown before the tour culminates in Cleveland, the day before the historic 2016-17 Cavs Home Opener presented by Kenda Tires on October 25th vs. New York Knicks at The Q at 8:00 p.m. The regional tour provides Cavs fans a free opportunity to snap a photo with the trophy, up-close and personal, using their own camera.
"We are happy to celebrate winning an NBA Championship with Cavs fans across the state of Ohio who have been loyal supporters of the Wine &Gold throughout this journey," said Cavaliers CEO Len Komoroski. "Taking the Larry O'Brien trophy on a regional tour gives fans the opportunity share in the excitement and thank them for being an important part of this special time in Cavaliers history."
In each city, the Larry O’Brien trophy will arrive at a well-known, pre-selected venue with an entourage of Cavs entertainment team members including in-arena host Ahmaad Crump, members of the Cavalier Girls, Scream Team and Cavs mascot Sir C.C. The Cavs will accommodate as many fans as possible in the allotted time frame at each stop on a first-come, first-served basis.
