CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The reigning NBA champions will debut a new floor design when the Cleveland Cavaliers open up Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday for their annual Wine and Gold scrimmage.

The team unveiled the new-look floor on Friday afternoon.


The new design is accented around the perimeter in black, a tip of the cap to the black sleeved uniforms the Cavs wore when storming back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.

According a press release from the team, the floor was designed by the Cavaliers graphics team, and the court was constructed by Robbins Portable Floors in Cincinnati, Ohio.  It is composed of 210, 4’ x 8’ pieces and 15, 4’ x 4’ pieces, and takes approximately one hour to assemble.

Here is the 2015-2016 floor design for comparison:

The biggest noticeable differences are the slightly different floor color, the addition of a sword through the C at midcourt and the absence of Cleveland’s skyline.

The Cavs’ Wine and Gold scrimmage will take place this Sunday at the Q. Cleveland will open up the exhibition schedule on Wednesday, October 5 vs. the Orlando Magic at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavaliers’ regular season will begin on Tuesday, October 25 at home against the New York Knicks.
