Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers retired the number 11 Jersey worn by Zydrunas Ilgauskas during a ceremonious halftime show at the Knicks vs Cavs game.
Now, there was so much going on at this game, I could barely pay attention to how well the Knicks were playing. As a matter of fact, the Knicks were playing so well, it was almost as if the knew each other. Go figure. With Carmelo Anthony seemingly half dead from a Michael Jordan level cold/flu, everyone had to step up. Well, not really, because Melo the Messiah, sick and all, was still killing them.
But what was so fun for me to watch was the old Cavs in the building there to support their pal “Z”. Although Lebron James had to be elsewhere for a Heat game the next day, he still managed to be there for Z. I felt as nervous for him as he looked in that suit hoping some crazed Cavs fan didn’t do something stupid. It was also fun to see all the old Cavs pose for real pics and pretend pics like the old days. But wait, is that Delonte West? Sure is! Is he getting in that pic? Sure is! Am I the only one wondering if Lebron’s mom, well, lets let bygones be bygones? Congrats to Zydrunas Ilgauskas. It was supposed to be his night and I’m glad all went well. He seems like a really good guy. I suppose the funniest thought in my head the whole night though, was imagining hearing John Travolta say his name.
