CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Rust-Oleum unveiled a renovated basketball court and senior room at East End Neighborhood House.
Cavs CEO Len Komoroski, legends Austin Carr, Jim Chones and Elmore Smith, in-arena host Ahmaad Crump and Rust-Oleum Corporation Manager, Public Relations Vince Pierre were among those in attendance for Thursday’s official ribbon cutting.
