LOL, we got shafted AGAIN. 

 

Cleveland has won the lottery 2 out of the last 3 years... really? I mean if your going to rig it at least make it seem somewhat legit. 

 

LeBron takes his talents to south beach and oh look, the Cavs go 2 for 3 in the draft lottery. 

 

The only thing that kept them from going 3 for 3 was the NBA giving the # 1 pick to New Orleans as a housewarming gift for the new ownership.

I don't see the point in the whole lottery thing anyway... The worst team should end up with the first pick I think if a record is tied then you should go the route of the lottery


Or at least keep it between the top three or four teams. There's no reason that a borderline playoff team should have a shot at the top pick.

Here's my thing, if a team is willing to tank a whole season they deserve the # 1 pick.

True... I mean the Cavs have a pretty solid team and they are always near the top (Maybe their talent isn't as good as I think or their coaching isn't that good)

I knew we wouldn't get the first pick, but im happy with getting the 4th pick.  Perfect spot for Anthony Bennett.  Hes the guy I wanted all along and I think it would have been somewhat of a reach at 1 or 2.

I just don't see McLemore falling past Orlando... yes they need a point guard, but when you have a chance to land a super star at a position of need; well you take him.

 

I could potentially seeing us getting fugged with Noel, McLemore, and Bennett going one, two, and three.

LBJ has mentioned the potential of returning to Cleveland when his contract runs up.  Him returning would be a HUGE story/PR move for both he and the NBA.  Maybe Stern is just trying to give him the supporting cast he was always without?
