Welcome to The Show! On Monday, we continue our 65 in 65. That's 65 NBA chats in 65 days. We will hold an NBA chat each day through the end of the NBA Finals. We'll bring you players, analysts, writers, anyone who can help you fill your NBA fix. Monday's guest is former Cavs guard and current television analyst Austin Carr.

Going into their second season as a franchise, the Cleveland Cavaliers held the No. 1 overall pick in the 1971 NBA Draft and with their pick they selected Austin Carr, a high-scoring shooting guard and two-time All-American out of Notre Dame.

As a rookie, Carr quickly developed into the top option on offense averaging 21.2 points per game and became the first Cavalier named to the All-NBA Rookie Team. Carr is still the franchise leader in field goals made and attempted and ranks second in points scored.

He remains involved in the organization serving as Director of Community and Business Development as well as the full-time analyst for the Cavaliers Television Network. Cleveland retired his jersey on January 3, 1981.

Send your questions now and join Carr in chat on Monday at noon ET!
