20,562 T-shirts are laid neatly across seats in Quicken Loans Arena for each and every NBA Playoffs and Finals game so that fans can have their own uniforms as they cheer on the Cavs on the court.

The bright wine and gold colors and designs on each one takes a lot of thought -- and a lot of planning.

"We're definitely here to wardrobe Cleveland and I think we've been doing a good job of that," said Tracy Marek, Chief Marketing Officer for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

She said the shirts are printed just days in advance of each home game, because you can never predict what will happen on the court. 

While we all love free swag, one question that always gets asked is -- why are the shirts always sized XLs?

"There's no such thing as one-size-fits-all in this world but when you're mass producing 20,562 shirts, you've got to start somewhere," Marek added.
