Cavaliers win big at Draft Lottery!
The Cleveland Cavaliers won big in the 2011 NBA Draft Lottery, last night! Against all odds, the Cav’s won the #1 and #4 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft! The Cav’s brought a good luck charm, 14-year-old Nick Gilbert. Nick represented the Cav’s, and stood on stage flagging a Cav’s #1 jersey afterward. It is heartwarming considering young Nick, Cav’s owner Dan Gilbert son, has been battling a disease since birth. The Cavaliers can start to get a new team in order in the post-Lebron era. Duke freshman phenom, Kyrie Irving, is projected to be the #1 pick. The NBA Draft is set for June 23, 7PM EST ESPN at the Prudential Center!

”Shocking events took place last summer and it was a slow, long, painful haul to get through it. Maybe this will be the final straw in getting over the hump, getting to the other side, and having a lot of hope for the future,” Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said. ”That’s what we need.”
”It’s sort of Nick fashion. He has been doing it his whole life to some degree. I’m proud of him. I’m proud of the way he carried himself and I am very excited for the fans of Cleveland, Ohio who have been through a very, very rough year,” Dan Gilbert said. ”They deserve it more than anybody and they have some good hope now.”
