Norma Hovanes

Norma Hovanes, a 90-year-old Boardman resident, is a huge Cavaliers fan and wanted to attend a game. The Cleveland Cavaliers gave Norma all-star treatment, allowing her to watch the players warm up before the game. Several players introduced themselves and spent some time with her. She is pictured here with Kevin Love.

Hovanes was overwhelmed by the opportunity to sit courtside and meet the players she watches on the television. The Cavs also gave her a prize pack with merchandise including a LeBron James blanket.

 “Even though I didn’t get to meet LeBron, I get to bring him home with me!” she said.
