Cavaliers Consider Color Change

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers say they might change their team colors.

The team has asked fans to vote for one of six color combinations being considered for the 2003-04 season.

The Cavaliers' colors have been blue, black and orange since the 1994-95 season, when the club moved to Gund Arena.

Two of the color options fans can vote for include shades of red and white. A third has red, two shades of blue, gray and black.

Votes can be cast on the team's Web site and at Gund Arena until Aug. 9.

From 1983 to 1994, the Cavaliers' uniforms were burnt orange, royal blue and white.

Cleveland's colors were wine and gold from their inaugural season in 1971 through the 1982-83 season. Those colors have remained popular with some of the team's longtime season-ticket holders.
