John Battle says, "Good Morning, Cleveland"




John Battle. One of the supporting cast of the last great Cavs team. Ten seasons in the league, with Atlanta and Cleveland, tallying 5,338 points. I'm pretty sure he lived down the street from me in Hinckley when I was growing up, and I'm pretty sure his wife gave out tremendous bags of candy at Halloween. Maybe it wasn't him. I don't remember. I do remember the jumbo Snickers though.
