The Cavaliers get their shot at LeBron James this morning and according to Brian Windhorst, via Fear The Sword, the plan is to keep thing light-hearted and fun.
The Cavs also plan on playing toward James’ sense of humor and playfulness, something with which the team is very familiar. The plan is to keep it loose and informal because of their long-term relationship with James, who has been attending the meetings in T-shirts and sweats while his suitors arrive in $2,000 suits.
Although the Cavs have met with James in person several times since the end of the season, they have been preparing for this moment for several months. While their presentation will not be as flashy as some of the others, sources said the Cavs spent significant money and time in creating their show.
The Cavs have displayed the theme of their pitch with the billboards reading “Home” that are across the city. The feeling of home and the comfort with the team is part of the selling point.
There will be, of course, serious business to discuss, like how new coach Byron Scoot plans to use James and just what Chris Grant and Dan Gilbert plan to do to improve the roster. It all goes down this morning.
