For those who are unaware, Quicken Loans Arena is home of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers and superstar LeBron James.

This is a great way to build the profile of the Vikings basketball program and an opportunity that many players will not have.
After all, who gets to share an arena with the best basketball player in the world?
As part of the agreement, Quicken Loans will help to book concerts and other events at the Wolstein Center on campus.
