Video: Cavs Pick Z in 1996 Draft

Posted By on Tue, Dec 1, 2009 at 10:04 AM

(Found via Cavalier Attitude)

Decided to post this video for a few reasons. First, Z is the topic of conversation when it comes to the Cavs this week after Mike Brown gave the big guy a DNP-CD on a night when he invited family and friends to be in attendance for what would have been a games-played record for the organization. Second, it's always funny to see Z in his younger days. Third, for the hilarious line uttered after the selection was announced: "With those two picks the Cleveland Cavaliers definitely lead the league in first round syllables," referring, of course, to the previous Cavs selection of Vitaly Potapenko. And fourth, remember the Cavs took Vitaly Potapenko with the 12th pick. Who was the 13th pick? That's right, Kobe Bryant.
