Main factor must be loyalty and dedication, was quality player aswell despite in many cases career ending foot injuries.

Lol, shut up. Not every move the Cavs make is related to LeBron.

Z has meant a lot to the city and the franchise. Sometimes accolades aren't the most important thing. If anyone deserves this, it's him.

I was being sarcastic. Dan Gilbert is still a salty hoe doe.

16 year tenure with the Cavs.
2 time all star.
All-Rookie first team and Rookie game MVP.
17/9 with 2 blocks on 47% was his best season but even that came after multiple foot surgeries. Warrior and fan favorite in all his years.

I'm sure there's worse candidates.

At least he made an Allstar team. A lot more understandable than the Spurs retiring Bruce Bowen's number.

He played 12 years with the Cavs though.
