Cavs: Z's Milestone Ball Missing

By George Thomas Published: March 30, 2009

Cavs' center Zydrunas Ilgauskas  is willing to make a trade.
A Plain Dealer report revealed this morning that the ball that Z used to enter the Cavs' 10,000 point club walked out of The Quicken Loans Arena after the Atlanta Hawks game.  The ball was tossed in the crowd and the individual who caught it, never returned it.

Obviously they can’t do much with that ball, so it would be nice to get it back.  If somebody would bring it back, I could sign my jersey or trade something.  I could ask LeBron to sign something for them, Ilguaskas joked.
The 11-year veteran is only the fourth Cavalier to hit the 10,000 point mark for a career, but he's somewhat ambivalent about the ball's return, saying that the accomplishment means more than the actual ball.
If they want to hold it, go ahead.  My career wasn’t based on that. It was just a ball.  If they want to bring it back, yeah, I’ll take it .  Who knows?  Maybe some kids are playing with it right now.  Maybe they need it more; they can keep it.
