Cavs Fan Who Got "2015 NBA Champs" Tattoo Early Last Season Updates It To 2016

Posted By on Fri, Jan 1, 2016 at 10:41 AM

Update: We were just thinking about this guy the other day. You know, the one who got the 2015 Cavs NBA champs tattoo last year? Anyway, the NBA on TNT Twitter account sent out a pretty innocuous year-end tweet yesterday that basically said "Did you have a better year than this guy?" and linked to @lonniedoe's tattoo, which you can see below.

He quickly responded with an update: He's had the 2015 turned into 2016 in an update that is still ambitious and speculative but at least isn't completely wrong yet. Check it out:


(Original story 6/2/2015): Despite the fact that the Golden State Warriors are favored in the upcoming series, one Cleveland Cavaliers fan has some serious faith in his team. So much faith, in fact, that he decided to get some permanent ink in anticipation of this summer's games.

The tattoo features a large Cavaliers “C,” the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy, and of course his prediction: “2015 NBA Champions.” The fan has been tweeting at Cleveland sport superstars to try to get his tattoo noticed.
Many would say this is a bold choice, others would say it’s just crazy. And they have on social media: 
The Cavaliers tip-off at 9 p.m. on Thursday night. We know at least one guy who will be on the edge of his seat.
