The very first NBA In-Season Tournament is literally just days away, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are ready for it.
This young team feels that they could be the ones to claim the first NBA Cup.
The league just released special tournament designs for each homecourt, and the Cavaliers proudly shared theirs on Twitter on Monday morning.
“The floor is set,” the caption read.
The floor is set.

Like the rest, Cleveland’s design is very simple, understated, and easy on the eyes.
It’ll definitely look stark and eye-popping on television screens.
Now that fans know what the court will look like, they are ready to root for the Cavaliers during this inaugural tournament.
The team is part of the A group, which will see them face off against the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, and Detroit Pistons during the first round of play.
The team with the best record will then move on to the second round of the tournament.
That round features immediate elimination after a single loss.
If the Cavaliers can get through that, they will move on to the Quarterfinals and Semifinals.
It’ll all ultimately end with the championship, which will be held in Las Vegas.
When the In-Season Tournament was first announced, many NBA fans didn’t know what to think of it.
But as it quickly approaches, people are getting on board and see it as a way to add a lot of energy to the start of the season.
Of course, the games will count as regular season wins and losses, which gives even more incentive for the Cavaliers to win.
They have gotten off to a fairly rough start.
They have a 1-2 record after losing to both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Indiana Pacers.
Will the Cavaliers have better luck against the Pacers during the opening round of the tournament next week?
