The coolest thing to happen on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ court all season

Mar 18, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

The Cavaliers have lost most of their home games this season, but if there’s one thing they’ve done right on their own court this season, it’s this.

During Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ jersey-retirement ceremony, the Cavaliers projected this awesome special-effects/highlight package on the court.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $60,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Tuesday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $8,500. Starts at 7pm ET on Tuesday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

Had the Cavaliers played this up more in advance, LeBron Jamescontroversial return to Cleveland for the ceremony would have flown under the radar.

Now, the Cavaliers ought to start using this technology during games. Imagine how opponents would react if the court randomly popped like it did 15 seconds into that video, Perfection style.

    thats amazing, do they do that every game? I wonder though if the 100 level seats can see it very well.

      No, that was the first time they have ever done it. Not sure if they will ever do it again but it was super cool to see. Thinking it was a one time thing or special occasion thing.

    Pretty darn cool for the folks like me sitting at home, but how’s it look from courtside or even the upper bowl?

    Cavs never show Terrell Brandon love…He was great after Mark Price`s era, just bad teams.
