The 2002–03 Cleveland Cavaliers season was the 33rd season of NBA basketball in Cleveland, Ohio. During the offseason, the Cavaliers acquired Darius Miles from the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers would struggle all season long as head coach John Lucas was replaced by Keith Smart after an 8–34 start. At midseason, Tyrone Hill was released and re-signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Cavaliers finished the season with a 17–65 record, last in the Eastern Conference and tied for the worst record in the NBA along with the Denver Nuggets. It was also the team's worst record since the 1981–82 season. Ricky Davis was the team's leading scorer averaging a career high of 20.6 points per game, and center Zydrunas Ilgauskas was selected for the 2003 NBA All-Star Game.
