The 1998-99 Cleveland Cavaliers season was the 29th season of NBA basketball in Cleveland, Ohio. Center Zydrunas Ilgauskas struggled with injuries and only played just five games. The Cavaliers finished the season with a 22-28 record in a strike-shortened season, finishing 7th in the Central Division. Shawn Kemp led the team in scoring, rebounds and minutes. However, he was a shell of his former self as he reported to practice, weighing 315 lbs, according to team's GM Wayne Embry thought the league listed him at 275. Head coach Mike Fratello was fired following the season after spending six seasons with the team.
