Cleveland Cavaliers 2000s All-Decade Team
#1. All-Decade Team C – Zydrunas Ilgauskas
With his No. 11 jersey retired, Z’s name will forever hang in the rafters of the Q, Zydrunas has left this decade with all the things he brought into it for the Cavaliers. He brought dedication, hard work, and height. He left with these things, as well as injuries, memories, and pride. Big Z had two All-Star appearances in 2003 and 2005. Ilgauskas is the all-time leader in games played (771), offensive rebounds (2,336), total rebounds (5,904), and blocked shots (1,269) for the Cavaliers. He is also one of just four Cavaliers players in the history of the franchise to top 10,000 points.
