Cavs Lose and All-Time Great, Mike Mitchell Passes Away at 55

Cavs Great (19.3 PPG, 5.8 APG over four years) Mike Mitchell passed away yesterday after a 2 year battle with cancer.  Mike was the bright spot on the Cavs post AC and Bingo era.

Mike made the 1981 All-Star game that was hosted in Richfield, OH. He score 14 on 6/12 shooting and grabbed 4 rebounds in 15 minutes of work in front of his home crowd.

Mike was well known for prolific scoring and a high arching jumper.  He had no fear in putting it up.

The Cavs drafted Mike in 1978 and he came off the bench his first season before joining the starting line-up and becoming a great scorer.

RIP Mike.
