Standing 7-foot-3 is one thing. Having the athleticism of a professional athlete is another. Coupling that with a relentless work ethic is what made Zydrunas Ilgauskas one of the best players in Cleveland Cavaliers history. He played the game among the trees, annually ranking among the league leaders in rebounding and blocked shots. On 11/1/02, het set a career high with 22 rebounds and added 17 points in a game against the Suns. A little more than three years later, he matched a career high with seven blocked shots in a 100-91 win over the Bulls (2/23/05). He blocked seven shots in a game three times in his career. In an era when big men began to dominate like decades previous, Ilgauskas was one of the NBA's best. In this designed image, Big Z is rising up for a thunderous dunk against the Nuggets. Ilgauskas has signed this Rising Up 16" x 20" image in silver paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five Step Process.
