Hey CavsHistory Buffs, just added the page for the 2009 Hardwood Classics Jersey here.
This is the fourth Hardwood Classics that the Cavs have sported over the years. (Actually five, they wore the Miracle of Richfield Jerseys throwback once in 1995 for the 25th anniversary of the franchise… but I still can’t find pictures or the date that they did so).
Check out the jersey page here.
Did you know that at 24 years old, LeBron is already 10th on the all-time list of triple-doubles with 25? Only two active players have more. Grant Hill (age 27 with 29) and Jason Kidd (age 36 with 103). He only has 3 less than Jordan already.
Just a little off-topic stats for a dull day
