Talking about having a horseshoe up your….

For the third time in 10 years, and the second time in three, the Cleveland Cavaliers have won the draft lottery.

Nick, the son of owner Dan Gilbert, was the Cavs representative at the lottery, just like he was in 2011 when the team won and used the pick to select Duke star Kyrie Irving. They used it in 2003 to select high school phenom LeBron James.  So the “Cavs” and “No. 1 pick” are synonymous.


Dan Gilbert“It’s huge for us. This is our third year in a row in the lottery, and hopefully it’s our last for a long, long time. I knew he was lucky. We’ll take two out of three.”



Nick Gilbert - Cavs“I just had a feeling that hopefully we could get the top pick. And whoever we pick, hopefully we can make a push into the playoffs.”

I would say it smells like a #CONSPIRACY THEORY, but I will leave it alone.
