Yahoo Sports announced a nominal all-time best Cleveland Cavaliers starting lineup, which found itself with Lithuanian Zydrunas Ilgauskas. 40 years old 221 cm tall Zydrunas was announced as the best center forward in Cavaliers. The symbolic five also got Austin Carr, Mark Price, Larry Nance and of course LeBron James.

Big Z was like Bill Walton, without the MVP trophy and two rings. He was a tall player with brittle bones. Many thought that he won’t ever come back from the stress fractures that knocked him out, but he played and he did it successfully. He never won a ring in Cleveland and his 13.8 – point, 7.7 – rebound averages (in 27 minutes) as a Cav may not wow you, but there is no doubt that he’s the best center Cavaliers ever had.
