Retiring in 2011, Joe Tait has said little about the Cavaliers since the day the team hung his name in the rafters. He came back for this season's Miracle of Richfield celebration, yet remained silent on the current team and their chances for glory.
Following the Cavaliers' win on Sunday night, however, Mike Snyder and the folks at Tait's former flagship station WTAM/1100 AM were able to track down the legendary broadcaster and get his thoughts on the 52-year drought and the play of LeBron James.
"It was an awesome performance," said Tait. "Without a doubt, [LeBron] has placed himself at the top of the list among the greats who have played this game in the NBA"s history. LeBron earned that right last night, and the games prior to last night. It wasn't just a one-night flash; he kept building and building and building and ended up with what he was after and that was the title."
Tait did add that had not Jim Chones gotten hurt during the Miracle of Richfield season that this would have been the city's second title, but stated that no fan base deserves the Larry O'Brien more than the city of Cleveland.
