Cavaliers Season Adventure
Bob Finnan of the News Herald did a three part behind-the-scenes look at the 2006-07 season.
Highlights from Part I:
After the game, some goofball radio guy asked James, “Do you take little LeBron to Chuck E. Cheese?” James answered him, too. Then, said dope follows up with another question, “Do you get more women as LeBron the basketball player or the businessman?” That’s when Cavs media director Tad Carper sprung into action. “All right, out!” Carper yelled. “Out!”
Cavs guard Eric Snow, sitting nearby in the locker room, chuckled all through the exchange. Two weeks before, the radio guy asked then-Indiana Pacers forward Stephen Jackson about his “weapon of choice.”
Highlights from Part II:
The Cavs played in Boston on Jan. 3, and Ilgauskas was signing autographs before the game at the TD Banknorth Garden. One fan said, “Thanks for signing our autographs. You’re nicer than most of those foreigners.”
Highlights from Part III:
We’ve seen enough of Wesley who drove hard to the basket in the Dallas game and, somehow, ventured too far under the basket. His layup attempt was blocked by the rubber foaming on the bottom of the basket support.
One jokester said they should have stopped the game, dragged out a podium and microphone, and allowed him to announce his retirement on the spot.
