Cavaliers' Facebook likes are way up since last season for some reason

Thursday November 6th, 2014

The Cleveland Cavaliers saw a massive jump in Facebook likes this offseason, likely due to excitement over the team's offseason signings.

The team's acquisition of big names like Mike Miller, Shawn Marion and, of course, Kevin Love over the summer -- in addition to exciting rookies Will Cherry, Alex Kirk and Joe Harris -- saw the team receive a 19.7% increase in fans on the social networking site since July 29th, according to The Wall Street Journal.

LeBron: I'm coming back to Cleveland

Oh, there's that LeBron guy, too. 

The boost was not enough for Cleveland to become the most liked NBA team on Facebook, a title which currently belongs to the Los Angeles Lakers, but it did move Cleveland from 13th to 10th on the list.
