NBA DRAFT: CAVS GET TOP PICK… ONCE AGAIN IN PAST 10 YEARS
Thu, 19 May 2011 02:52 PM EDT

The Cavaliers got a mammoth sized soar on their post-LeBron rebuilding process, winning the lottery and the No. 1 selection in next month’s NBA draft. The lucky Cleveland Cavs turned a pick from the Los Angeles Clippers that had only 2.8% odds of winning the top spot. This first pick was acquired from the Mo Williams for Baron Davis deal during the trade deadline. Basketball scores.

The Cavs will get to pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted LeBron James out of high school. The superstar left for Miami last off-season and the Cavs dropped to the second-worst record in the NBA. Good news is Cleveland is having the 4th pick as well, so they’ll get to draft two top-4 talented young players this year and start the rebuilding process around these guys.

Minnesota will get to choose second and Utah turned New Jersey’s pick from the Deron Williams trade into the No. 3 selection. The Timberwolves continued their incredible lottery losing streak misery, falling to 0 for 14 and dropping for the eighth time. They had a 25% chance of winning after finishing with a league-worst 17-65 record. Basketball odds.

Speaking of future NBA stars, the Cavs reportedly said they will likely decide between point guard Kyrie Irving of Duke or Arizona forward Derrick Williams as the top pick.

“I don’t think you can make comparisons to me and LeBron,” said Irving, who attended the lottery. “One, I’m not 6-8. Two, I’m not a high flyer and three, my name isn’t LeBron James. Honestly, you can’t make those comparisons yet. I think I would bring a different feel to the Cleveland organization if they do decide to take me.” Basketball spreads.

This was all about the odds, and the Cavs beat them all… for the second time in the past decade.
