Dan Gilbert took in the All-Star festivities in Houston this weekend. One thing that was sure to grab his attention was the giant video screen scoreboard. Gilbert has spent over $40 million for arena improvements since taking over the team, but isn’t done. Improving cell reception in the Q has been the priority this season, but improving the scoreboard has been on his mind as well. Things could be moving forward in that project according to Jason Llyod- “Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wants to replace the scoreboard inside the Q with a larger, high-definition model similar to the massive 25-foot by 58-foot Panasonic scoreboard inside the Toyota Center that was on display during All-Star weekend. Houston’s scoreboard is the largest high-definition viewing screen in a North America arena and is considered perhaps a rebuttal to the 72-foot by 160-foot scoreboard down the road in Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. Gilbert said he’d like to have a new scoreboard in place “hopefully in the next year or two.” It’s one of a number of changes he envisions coming to the arena, both inside and outside. With his new casino just steps away from the Q, Gilbert has visions of reworking the adjacent streets and giving the area a feeling similar to Times Square in New York City. The entire Toyota Center project, which included upgraded Wi-Fi, a new control room to run the video screen and game presentation upgrades, cost about $15 million.The scoreboard could help the Cavs’ chances of landing a future All-Star game. Gilbert said this weekend his goal is to bring the game to Cleveland in either 2016 or 2017.” For a look at just how big that scoreboard in Houston is, click here.
