Cavaliers Legend Nate Thurmond dies

Here is a statement on behalf of the entire Cavs organization from Cavs Director of Alumni Relations and Nate's teammate and friend, Campy Russell:

"We are very saddened by the loss of Nate Thurmond. Nate’s jersey hangs in the rafters at The Q because of the unselfish way the Akron native and Hall of Famer approached the game we all love, the teammate that he was, his profound impact on one of the most special seasons in Cavaliers history, and the way that all translated on and off the court to reflect the 'All for One. One for All.' code. Just as Nate always held the Miracle team, the Coliseum crowds and his local roots dear to him, the Cavaliers franchise will always love and respect him as a true Cavalier legend. We extend our deepest condolences to Nate's wife, Marci, and their family during this difficult time.”
