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.
I would say it smells like a #CONSPIRACY THEORY, but I will leave it alone.
Here’s how the rest of the teams look in the draft.
|Pick||Team||Percent chance at No. 1 pick|
|6||New Orleans Pelicans||8.8%|
|10||Portland Trail Blazers||1.1%|
|12||Oklahoma City Thunder||—|
|Rest of Round 1|
|24||New York Knicks||—|
|26||Los Angeles Clippers||—|
|28||San Antonio Spurs||—|
|29||Oklahoma City Thunder||—|
The draft is June 27 in New York.
