Famed Cavs Jersey Replaced at The ‘Q’
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A famed jersey that went missing from Quicken Loans Arena has been replaced.
Austin Carr’s #34 jersey was retired by the Cavs on Jan. 3, 1981. The jersey was hanging up during the WWE wrestling event on Jan. 27. It was missing by the next morning.
Jeff Schaefer, Cavs spokesperson, said that a new jersey banner is up at the Q, and the team tweeted the news Wednesday morning.
There’s no word on what happened to the stolen jersey.
Carr was the number one overall pick of the Cavaliers in 1971. He was the first Cavalier named to the All-NBA Rookie Team and in 1974. Carr was an All-Star selection. “AC,” as he has become known, is second in field goals made and attempted, and is third in points scored.
