Aside from actually showing up to witness the jersey retirement in person, there is one way for James to show just how much he truly cares — paying homage to "Big Z" with a photo collage on Instagram.
James posted a collage with photos of himself and Ilgauskas from their playing days with the Cavaliers, including the caption, "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"
