CLEVELAND — Editor’s note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.
Factor in the Cavs landing the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft Lottery earlier this week and it’s easy to see why many currently have Cleveland basketball on their minds. And fortunately for Cavs fans, a new documentary could help them bridge the gap to next month’s NBA Draft.
Created by SBNation.com’s Secret Base, “The birth and destruction of the Cleveland Cavaliers needs a deep rewind” examines the franchise’s 46-year journey from its inception in 1970 to 2016’s championship. The first episode, which released on June 19 — the five-year anniversary of the 2016 championship — focuses on the early days of the Cavs, including the creation of the team, the “Miracle at Richfield” and the dark days of Ted Stepien’s ownership of the franchise.
You can watch a trailer for the series, as well as CHOSEN: Chapter 1, in the video players below.
On Wednesday’s episode of Locked On Cavs, Chris Manning and Evan Dammarell react to the Cavs landing the No. 3 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
