According to Cleveland.com, more than 1,000 full-time and part-time employees in the organization will receive the newest NBA championship ring.

While it’s not every employee, this does include seat ushers, ticketers, janitors, security guards, and local police officers.

2. The gesture will cost an estimated $1 million or more. Folks got a preview of the blingy title ring earlier this month.

3. People can’t believe it, and are applauding Gilbert for his thoughtfulness.

6. While others in the Cleveland area are excited for… other reasons.

Gonna be hitting every pawn shop in Cleveland to get my own Cavs championship ring.
