As the Cavs prepare to start their season in Orlando on Wednesday, we can't help but fulyl realize that we won't be seeing Fred McLeod. The Cleveland legend sadly passed away last month. His wife, Beth McLeod, a meteorologist over at Fox 8, was devastated by his death. 

In this video of McLeod, you can see the pure emotion running through him as the Cavs won the 2016 NBA Championship. But you can also see the really nice tie he's sporting.

"You gotta have a good tie!" is something he would always say. Well, right before the start of the Cavs 50th season, Beth McLeod has gifted her late husband's colleagues and loved ones with his ties. In the packages with the ties, McLeod asks everyone to wear them for the Cavs home opener on Saturday when they take on the Indiana Pacers. The postive response and loving messages from people all over the NBA have been overwhelmingly beautiful.

This was incredibly thoughtful and beautiful. It's a wonderful way to honor Fred, Beth's best friend.
