Dan Gilbert reportedly giving Cavs championship rings to janitors, food vendors and police

BY foxsports • September 28, 2016

It sounds like Dan Gilbert is sparing no expense when it comes to handing out championship rings to employees of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The team's owner will present more than 1,000 rings to full- and part-time workers, cleveland.com reported Wednesday. According to the report, the additional rings will cost Gilbert more than $1 million.

But before you praised Gilbert for his generosity, there is a catch. The rings the employees will be given won't have the same level of lavishness as the ones Cavs players and coaches will receive.

Ticket takers, janitors, ushers and Cleveland police officers who worked the games are some of the workers who will receive the commemorative rings. Considering it's the franchise's first championship and the city's first professional title in 52 years, it's no wonder Gilbert is in a very giving mood.
