LeBron James would enjoy honor
James is the franchise leader in total points, minutes and steals and is second all-time in assists. He has said in the past he envisioned his jersey in the rafters at Quicken Loans Arena. But with relations with his former team icy, James said he wasn't sure if it would happen.
"That's something I don't know and something I can't control," James said. "Anytime you get a jersey retired anywhere it is a tribute. I have my jersey in my high school and when that happened it was unbelievable. If that happens here, I'll be grateful."
James' Heat teammate, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, is the Cavs' all-time leader in games played and is also a candidate to have his jersey retired in Cleveland someday.
