Good one, Dan Gilbert

Yep, that’s the Cleveland Cavaliers’ new floor, complete with a carryover from the old Quicken Loans Arena court — “Cavs.com” in owner Dan Gilbert’s favorite font, Comic Sans. Surely you remember his most recent foray with the much-maligned typeface in his bizarrely punctuated rant against LeBron James on the night of “The Decision.” It’s such a versatile and playful set of letters.

Those “Ban Comic Sans” people don’t even know what they’re talking about. Dan Gilbert does, for sure. This is basically the best font since hieroglyphics were in vogue, so it makes a lot of sense to use it whenever possible. Maybe even new jerseys for next season.

Think about it, Dan. Though I’m sure you already have.

  10. I welcome The Basketball Jones having a news/blog section now, but it is no value to me if its just the same pictures/videos that Ball Don’t Lie posts with different text. Find your own niche Trey, otherwise I don’t see what the point of visiting is.

  11. @ Maarten: If you ever looked at BDL when Trey was Editor, you’d know this IS HIS niche. Can’t help it if BDL wanted to continue with a good thing, even after he left. You’ve got it messed up, buddy.

  12. [...] Cavaliers on Oct 26, 2010 The Cleveland Cavaliers are starting over. New uniforms, new coach, new floor at the Quicken Loans Arena and, oh yeah, no LeBron James. And since there’s no LeBron James, [...]
