On Thursday night, roughly 48 hours before Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ No. 11 is placed in the rafters forever, the Cleveland Cavaliers tweeted out a sneak peek of special celebratory imagery that will grace the floor at The Q.
The retirement ceremony is set to tip off during a special 18-minute halftime on Saturday night when the Cavaliers play host to the New York Knicks. Fans are encouraged, however, to get to their seats well before the start of the game for other commemorative moments. The team already has several projectors aimed at the floor as well as two giant screens at the north and south ends of The Q. If the image above is any indication of what else is in store, the night could be epic. Certainly a bright spot in what has been an otherwise dreary season.
