Pretty big day yesterday, the Cavs took Irving as expected with the 1st and surprised quite a few with Thompson at 4. I gotta admit I didn’t know Tristan at all prior to the pick and I just hope Coach Scott and GM Grant know more than I do.
I the 2nd round they picked Milan Macvan from Serbia – 6′ 9” 260 lbs… that’s all I know
Feels good to be at the center of the NBA Universe again. I gotta admit I missed it.
Cavs have the 1 and the 4 but we’ve heard all sorts of rumors about trades and changes. Twitter is a blessing and a curse. So much information is available but its hard to sift through it all. We will see.
Cavs have been spotty with drafts. Traditionally always making the right pick at #1 (Carr, Big Brad, LBJ) and making good 2nd round picks. But in the last 15 years we’ve NOT done so great at mid lottery picks.
Tomorrow should be fun.

Mike made the 1981 All-Star game that was hosted in Richfield, OH. He score 14 on 6/12 shooting and grabbed 4 rebounds in 15 minutes of work in front of his home crowd.
Mike was well known for prolific scoring and a high arching jumper. He had no fear in putting it up.
The Cavs drafted Mike in 1978 and he came off the bench his first season before joining the starting line-up and becoming a great scorer.
