Joe Tait is where he belongs...in the Hall of Fame

2

Who will be the Cavalier who will be hardest to replace? If you say that it will be LeBron James, regardless of any lingering bitterness, your argument would be a valid one. But, for me, it is a no-brainer (and trust me, I am an expert in that category, as some of my posts have surely attested)...to me, there will never be another broadcaster like Joe Tait, not in this town, not in any town, and when he leaves after the 2010-11 season, the void will be a daunting void to try to fill. Last night Joe received the recognition that he has earned through almost 40 years behind the microphone and accepted his enshrinement into the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. Congratulations, Joe, I think that it is safe to say that you created as many Cavs' fans over the years with your spirit and your honest "call of the game" than any individual player ever created, at least before the past few years. You, sir, will never be equaled.
