Hearts on fire: Mall store produces NBA Championship rings for Cavaliers

"When James was a teenager, he started attending games at the arena, and he couldn't believe how bad the Cavs were, how empty the arena often was, with its bright blue seats seeming like a neon sign of disinterest". Across the parking lot at Quicken Loans Arena, James and the Cavaliers were busy routing the Knicks in their season opener.

The season might have turned over, but the results looked much the same for the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks in their season-opening matchup on Tuesday night.

-LeBron James earned his 43rd triple-double of his career and his first ever season opener career triple-double.

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and members of the organization accepted their championship rings containing more than 400 diamonds.

Dana and Mattigan Warrior, the widow and daughter of The Ultimate Warrior, respectively, also were in attendance for the game.

And that was just LeBron James before the game.

Cleveland's players, coaching staff and front office personnel also received their championship rings in the pregame ceremony, and the sellout crowd chanted Lue's last name.

Irving led all scorers with 29 points, while Love had 23 points and 12 rebounds. Cleveland Cavaliers? Golden State Warriors?

Carmelo Anthony led NY with 19 points.

James scored 19 points, and added 11 rebounds and 14 assists. But triangle offense or whatever it is the Knicks are running, for now it looks like a bunch of guys trying to fend for themselves, and it'll be a while before we see something a little more cohesive.

Carmelo Anthony had 19 points on 8-of-18 shooting to lead NY, while new Knick Derrick Rose had 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting. Up went a banner, the first such to commemorate a championship in this town in 52 years. "But we sharpened up in the third and fourth quarter and it was a good win for us". Not put them down, but for sure we have to foul them in the open court to make sure (James) doesn't get the crowd into the game.

But Cavs point guard Irving was unstoppable in the third period, making eight out of his 10 shots, including three three-pointers, as Cleveland built an 82-64 lead entering the final quarter.

A press release noted that the interior side of the ring features a line of seven gemstones to represent the seven games that comprised the 2016 Finals.

After two days off, the Cavaliers will play their first road game of the young season when they visit their Eastern Conference Finals opponent from a year ago, the Toronto Raptors.
