The Cavs retired Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ jersey last night and to the surprise of many, LeBron James did show up to honor his friend and ex teammate.  James also posted a touching Instagram photo  & message earlier in the day to Big Z.

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

Since LeBron wrote “Big Z” I wonder if knows how to spell Z’s last name yet.

Since I also have a long Lithuanian last name, I’ll honor Z with these highlights and a collage.
