Cavaliers Will Give Championship Rings to More Than 1,000 Quicken Loans Arena Employees
Just an awesome gesture.
More than 1,000 employees who worked at Quicken Loans Arena throughout the 2015-16 season will be rewarded by the Cleveland Cavaliers with Championship rings as a thank you for their hard work and contribution to the success of the franchise.
While it won’t be the same ring as the players receive, it will cost an estimated $1 million to design the rings for the staff. Team owner Dan Gilbert will present rings to both employees of the building and the organization, a spokesperson for the Cavaliers confirmed to Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon.
“Employees learned about the rings earlier this month at something called the “Spectaculars,” a company-wide (Cavs, Monsters, Quicken Loans Arena) yearly meeting and employee-recognition event. The gesture extends to workers for Aramark, the contractor that supplies food-service workers for Cavs and Monsters home games.
The Cavs declined to say whether or not former coach David Blatt — who was fired in January — or former center Anderson Varejao (traded in February) were getting rings. But Gilbert is obviously in a mood to be inclusive.”
Clearly Dan Gilbert is feeling great after the Cleveland Cavs became the first team in history to overcome a 3-1 series deficit in the NBA Finals, ending a 52-year championship drought in the city of Cleveland in the process.
