If you haven't been to a Cavaliers home game you should try to get there. Even without LeBron James, the Cavaliers do an incredible job creating a fun and festive atmosphere at The Q. From the fire that shoots out of the scoreboard during player introductions, to the 'Scream Team', the organization has made a Cavaliers home game an event - even for those that aren't basketball diehards.

As economic times have gotten tough, teams need a way to make the game experience more than just, well, the game. It has to be fun - it has to give fans the feeling that they are getting more for their money than just the action on the court.

Honestly, whenever I am at The Q, I'm exhausted when I leave, and not just becuase of the game. There is so much audio and visual stimulation - at ALL TIMES - that it is hard for my mind to keep up. Once I get into the quiet of my car for the drive home I find myself worn out form all the music, fire, yelling, screaming, cheering, and of course, the game.

For me, I love it! I've been to other arenas that simply just don't have the energy The Q possesses. Wednesday night was a prime example. So I ask you - the Cavaliers home-game experience --
