The news has spread that LeBron James may be attending Zydrunas Ilgauskas’s jersey retirement ceremony March 8th. The NBA schedule works out for LeBron, and the past works for the pair too. LeBron grew up watching Big Z lead a lot of terrible Cavs teams. Big Z hopes the star of Akron is received warmly, since they are friends.
I, on the other hand, hope LeBron is not received at all. The night is about Big Z and just a whiff of LeBron is going to lead to a handful of boos, cheers, and inevitable coverage about the pair’s friendship that overshadow the big guy.
