Shocked and saddened to hear about the loss of Fred McLeod. He was a student of the game. He loved the CAVS but even more so the fans…Fred worked his ass off for the city of Cleveland and the NBA. Praying and sending my best to his wife Beth and kids.
RIP Fred… You and your voice will be missed ? My deepest condolences to McLeod family…
One of the first athletes to respond was Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. The former Cavs icon was extremely sad and surprised to hear the news before sending his thoughts and prayers to the family.
Man WHAT!!!!??? ??OMG this is extremely sad. @CavsFredMcLeod May you rest in Paradise my friend! @BethHMcLeod my prayers sent up above to you and your family!! ??❤️❤️❤️ #RIPFred https://t.co/XWMHUqWJxf
Moments after sending his first message, James posted a video of the very moment McLeod named the Cavs 2016 NBA champs. In the video, McLeod’s passion for the team and skill as an announcer are both on full display.
McLeod will forever be missed. He will also forever be a part of the deeply connected Cavs family.
