Remembering Mike Mitchell

It is never too late to remember the grand appearances of those who sparked highlights before those we see run up and down the court today. Former NBA All-Star Mike Mitchell, who played with the Cleveland Cavaliers died June 9, 2011 of cancer. He was only 55 and although he was taken away from this earth a few moments too soon. He averaged 24.5 points during his single All Star season, with Cleveland and has been one of the most overlooked athletes in the history of the wine and gold. As sports fans, we have to remember never to look too far down the road that we forget the journeys taken years ago. LeBron James may have brought forth highlights as he played the small forward position in the organization, but Mitchell was one of the most proficient scorers to ever dawn a Cavaliers jersey.
