Currently owned by Dan and Gary Gilbert, the “Cavs” are a Cleveland, OH based professional basketball team. Getting their start in the NBA in 1970, the 2010 team is now coached by Mike Brown, and has among its players the NBA’s 2009 MVP, LeBron James, who holds a number of career records within his team. Notable past players include Lance Allred, the first deaf player in the NBA, Lenny Wilkens, Walt Frazier, and Nate Thurmond.
During the 1970s, the team established itself when their coach, Bill Fitch, received “Coach of the Year” during the 1975-76 season, although statistically they incurred more losses than wins throughout the remainder of the decade. Poor management ensued under Ted Stepien in the early 1980s, but was revived after the Gund brothers purchased the team in 1983. The 1990s were an all-time low for the team until 2003, when LeBron James joined the team as the number one draft pick of the NBA Lottery. The Cavalier’s mascot, the Moondog, is in honor of their city as it was once the name of a local radio personality, Alan Freed.
