This is pretty funny: Knicks big man Joakim Noah was still on the court shooting free throws while the Cavs dimmed the lights and played a video to begin the ring ceremony. Noah joked earlier that Cleveland is not a tourist destination. His dislike for Cleveland is well documented.

Before the ring ceremony began, they showed highlights from the 2016 NBA Finals over Queen's "We Are The Champions." When the video got to Game 7, the crowd inside Quicken Loans Arena erupted.

World Series Game 1, NBA season opener, Cavs ring/banner ceremony, KD's Golden State debut. What a great night of sports ahead.
