Why the deck railing on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ new home looks so bad
Updated February 15, 2019 11:54:15After all, the team that drafted LeBron James in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft in the 2014 NBA Draft is looking for a home to live in.
The Cavs, who have the league’s fourth-worst record and are coming off a loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, have made a big commitment to redevelop the historic, $4 billion, 1,100-seat Municipal Auditorium.
It’s the largest arena in the NBA and the most expensive to build, costing $3.4 billion.
The team said it had $600 million committed for the renovations and will begin work next week, with the team’s arena chief, David Griffin, saying that the team expects to complete the $1.8 billion renovation by early March.
Cleveland is expected to announce its plans for the renovation in March.
The renovation of the Municipal Auditorum is a major undertaking.
The renovation of a basketball arena was the first step in the city’s attempt to make Cleveland one of the nation’s most walkable, urban communities.
But the Cavs have an issue with the way the building looks.
The decking on the side of the building is missing a large portion of the railing that spans over the railing at the base of the podium, and the decking is not installed on all the seats in the building.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a problem with their new home, and it’s a problem that won’t go away anytime soon.
