Little Gio becomes Cleveland Cavaliers’ number 1 fan

(WTNH)–“This is the playoffs…this is it…this is our time…this is for Cleveland,” Little Gio said.

And this is how Gio made his way onto the Cleveland Cavaliers’ scoreboard on Tuesday night. His dad Seth and mom Beth made a video of the little guy after the family’s favorite team asked fans to submit hype videos that they would play during playoff games.

“By two o’clock in the morning, we had already shot, edited and submitted our video to the Cavs,” Beth said.

“They surprisingly called us on the phone the next day,” said Seth.

With Gio’s passion for basketball, Seth and Beth, who are both wedding photographers, say their video turned out to be a slam dunk. The Cavaliers are pretty much all their son thinks about.

“Most kids are playing games, and he’s watching videos on the Cavs app. He’s watching interviews and highlight videos. He’s crazy about them,” Seth said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
