    Here is our display for comparison:

    Toyota Center - Two boards at 25' x 58' each and two at 25' x 25' each for a grand total of 4150 ft^2

    The Q - Two boards at 31.5' x 56.69' each and two at 29.92' x 33.07' each for a grand total of 5550.38 ft^2

    As you can see, the Cav's boards will be taller, but I honestly would hate it if our already gargantuan boards were bigger. Looks like we have reached the point of diminishing returns.

    The flaming swords are cool though, I wish we brought back the rocket

    At some point, it's just too much..I thought the Rockets one was already ridiculous but this is just over the top.

    It is good to see they use fire so that Lebron thinks he is still with the heat:rolleyes:

    Well, seems Lebron comes back to town and Cleveland wants to do everything.

    They have something to live for again. I mean, come on... It's Ohio.

    If Lebron and this cast of player are unable to bring a title to Cleveland...that city will never ever ever win anything. Period...

    Pretty cool, but I'm more excited for the Sixers new 3-D hardwood court projection.

    You know what's funny? The Cavs introduced the 3D court projection tech last year!

    Cavs had the 3D court projection last season. So do a few other teams. But i do agree the Sixers have used the technology to the best effect. It would be funny to see players trying to play on a exploding court. :)

    In the future we will be probably see floor where patterns, logos and everything is projected on so they can change it even more spectacularly.
