Well, it happened. The day the Cavs traded away my favorite player to go for the ring. I can only hope Z gets bought out. If not, it will sour my love of the Cavaliers for a long time.
For years if you went to a Cavs game you know the first offensive play would be a dump pass into the post to Ilgauskas and whole crowd would go “ZZZZZZZZZZZZ!” Its one of my favorite things in sports.
I know you root for the name on the front of the jersey and not the one on the back, but I like rooting for Z. Hope to see you in 30 days my man.
Here’s the details:
A 3 team trade in which the Wizards received Zydrunas Ilgauskas and the Cavaliers’ 2010 first-round pick as well as Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers. They sent newly aquired Drew Gooden to the Clippers. The Cavaliers received point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers and Antawn Jamison from the stupid Wizards.
