From one guy with a Lithuanian last name (who is not Lithuanian) to a real Lithuanian with a Lithuanian last name – Happy Birthday!
Earlier this year, the Cavs retired Big Z’s number and LeBron gave him a touching shout out on Instagram.
Words can’t express how happy I am for u today! My truly good friend getting his jersey lifted into the rafters tonight. I appreciate everything Big Z and you deserve this more than anyone I know! #Zzzzzzzzzz#Zebrew #StriveForGreatness
Today is Big Z’s birthday and I don’t think we can top that message or that amazing retirement ceremony so we will just stick with “happy birthday” and show this video.
