(also known as the Cavs) are a professional basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio. They began playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1970 as an expansion team and won their first Eastern Conference Championship in 2007.
In 2008–2009, The Cavaliers wore retro uniforms during selected "Hardwood Classic" home games (as well as some road games) styled after their uniforms from their inaugural season of 1970–71. These uniforms are gold with wine colored trim featuring wine lettering on the name and number with white socks and shoes. There is also an alternate version of the retro uniform, which is royal blue with wine and gold trim, gold lettering on the name and number, with white socks and shoes.
The alternate uniform (worn both home and road) is navy blue with white letters and numbers and a wine, gold, and navy blue checkerboard trim, with white socks and shoes. The checkerboard trim is a tribute to the mid-1970s Cavaliers uniforms.link
