Again! Again! Again!

Can you believe that? For the third time in four years, the Cavs have the top pick in the NBA Draft. And they had a 1.7 percent chance of that happening.

It was not supposed to happen.

But it did.

In fact, they have been so lucky in the few lotteries. Here's an idea on how to figure out who they should take with the No. 1 pick. The top three players are said to be Duke's Jabarai Parker, along with Kansas products Joel Embid and Andrew Wiggins." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
