Cavs Win 2013 NBA Draft Lottery!

Woo!

Cavs Trade 3 Picks for Zeller

Cavs traded their 24th pick of the 1st round (Jared Cunningham) and their 33rd and 34th picks (Bernard James and Jae Crowder) to Dallas for a big dude, Tyler Zeller.

Last time we traded to Dallas on draft night, we got Mark Price.  Just Sayin’

In a surprising move, the Cavs took a 6′ 4″ scorer at #4 in the draft that never started a game in college.

Cavs Take Irving and Thompson in the First Round

1 and 4

#1 and #4

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

2011 Draft Tomorrow…

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.

But even he needed a little help.  The Cleveland Sportsverse was well represented as Gilbert flew out Josh Cribbs, Cavs SuperFan Joe Haden and also Bernie Kosar!?

And I agree with Nick: “What’s not to like”
