What's at stake on NBA's opening night

The Cleveland Cavaliers are hanging a banner for the first time in franchise history -- but they're also looking to end a strange streak. They've lost their past five season openers with LeBron James in uniform. The last time James started 1-0 as a Cav was in 2006-07. Cleveland did go 3-1 in season openers in the four years James was in Miami.

The Golden State Warriors ripped off 24 consecutive wins to open last season en route to a single-season record 73 wins. After losing in the NBA Finals, they went out and added Kevin Durant, but they've been careful to say not to expect another record-breaking season in 2016-17.

The team trying to topple the Warriors is the San Antonio Spurs, who'll be opening the season without Tim Duncan on the roster for the first time since 1996. Back then Bob Hill was the Spurs coach and Dominique Wilkins was their future Hall of Famer wearing No. 21.

In the one game on opening night that isn't nationally televised, the Utah Jazz visit the Portland Trail Blazers. The Jazz are looking to end a four-year playoff drought, their longest since missing the postseason in their first nine years of existence.

With apologies to Elsa and Anna, Cleveland is the center of the sports universe for the first time in forever. Not only are the Cavaliers raising a banner -- the first the city has seen from a major sports franchise in 52 years -- but the Indians are opening the World Series right next door. Perhaps the most exciting place to be for a sports fan on Tuesday night will be the plaza that sits between Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field.

What could make opening night in Cleveland better? How about free ice cream for everyone in Cleveland. That was the suggestion from James last week, and Blue Bunny is stepping up to the challenge, with a truck giving away free ice cream to fans.

Hey Cleveland, @KingJames asked for an ice cream truck to make tomorrow even more fun. Free ice cream is coming - see you soon! #WonForAll pic.twitter.com/mndv7TsJtB
