Ehlo joined the Marc Hochman Show with Zach Krantz to reflect on one of the most iconic moments in NBA history.
“For me it was a great moment because I was on a great team in Cleveland and I had a good game going in that game,” Ehlo said on 560 WQAM. “It’s something I’ll always cherish as one of the closest memories that I have of my teammates in Cleveland, losing that game. We were on the short end of it but I don’t know, it just made me want to play more and play harder, and be a better person.”READ MORE: Florida Gov.
