Although we knew it was coming, and thus it should be anti-climactic, still there is going to be something bizarre come next season about seeing Zydrunas Ilgauskas playing in a uniform other than a Cavs'. When Z was traded to Washington last season, there was never any doubt that he was just treading water with the Wizards, and was never going to actually get court-time.
But now? Now we can count on seeing the long-time Cavalier in enemy uniform.
The dilemma now becomes: How to wish Z all the best in consort with James? Perhaps it is best to simply say...stay healthy Z, and let's hope that, sometime in mid-season, you are traded to the Lakers or some other team that also is a legitimate contender, so that, if and when you win your ring, it will not be in the shadow of LeBron.
