Cab Legacy Spotlight

Austin Carr

Austin Carr

One of this year’s recipients of the Cleveland Association of Broadcasters Awards of Excellence, Austin Carr just finished his 27th season as the color analysts for the Cavaliers and 42nd year of service with the team. Austin grew up in the Washington DC area and was a Parade High School All-American before attending Notre Dame, where he was named a 2 time All-American. During his final season at ND, he became only the second player to tally more than 1,000 points in a season, joining Pistol Pete Maravich in that select group. His record scoring average of 50 points per game in seven NCAA playoff games is a record that may never be broken.

A first-round pick of the Cavaliers, AC enjoyed a standout career with the team from 1971-1980. Austin joined the front office in 1991 as Director of Community and Business Development.  Beginning in 1997, Carr became the full time color analyst.

Carr played the 9 of 10 seasons in the NBA with the Caves before stops in Washington DC and Dallas. He was named to the NBA All-Rookie team in 1972 and represented Cleveland in the 1974 All Star Game. On January 3, 1981, the Caves retired his number (34) and he was selected to the Cavs All Time Starting Five.

Always active in community affairs, Carr won the Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award after the 79-80 season, an award recognizing the NBA player or coach who made substantial contributions to his community. He continues his charitable activities with Alzheimer’s Association of Cleveland, the March of Dimes and the Center for Prevention of Domestic Violence.
