The NBA is rolling out a brand new In-Season Tournament this year, and there have been plenty of mixed feelings about it. But, on Monday, teams showcased their court designs for the tournament, and the Cavs took a special page out of their book for the tournament. Here’s the court design, per the Cavs’ official social media account.
The floor is set.

Cavs fans immediately took to social media, and it’s safe to say they love the design with ‘The Land’ right in the middle and ‘Let Em Know’ at the bottom.
Cavs should keep that In Season Tournament court for the rest of the season. #LetEmKnow

Maybe the Cavs didn’t get the jerseys right.
They sure as hell got the court right 🔥 https://t.co/Hg0d9ol2AF

it’s growing on me
the cavs gotta hone into the “real” metallic gold more with their branding, this is pretty sick https://t.co/7WXNdjhNNN

I still think an in-season tournament is asinine and not needed, but based on the other court designs I have seen (good LORD some of them are atrocious), the Cavs have one of the best ones out there. https://t.co/6nyT0WlT5I

Other teams’ fans weren’t entirely pleased with the different court designs, but Cavs fans almost entirely agreed on being supportive of this design. One team, the Boston Celtics, drew mixed reactions from fans with their design. Philadelphia 76ers fans also had mixed feelings.
The Cavs schedule for the NBA’s In-Season Tournament was revealed over the summer, and it’s going to be interesting to see how teams handle this new wrinkle in the NBA schedule. But, fans love ‘The Land’ design and some even want that to be a more permanent feature for the team.
The Cavs began the 2023-2024 season with a one-point win over the Brooklyn Nets, thanks to a game-winner by Donovan Mitchell. They then lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder by three and fell to the Indiana Pacers by 12, so it hasn’t exactly been the start they were hoping for.
Still, there is a lot of excitement for the Cavs this season, and this In-Season Tournament court design is going to be fun to see when it begins.
