Now, LeBron can go for his fourth consecutive NBA title with Kyrie Irving AND Nerlens Noel at his side. #2014
When you write up these quotes from the Gilberts, please put them in Comic Sans.
Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, LeBron James, Tristan Thompson and Nerlens Noel is going to be a great lineup in 2014-15.
Biggest winner: The casino being put next to the Cavs' arena.
New podcast dropping tonight! Topics include Dwight (shock!), PJ's book, Bieber's monkey, The Fast and the Furious franchise. AK
#1 - Cle, #2 - Orl, #3 - Was, - #4 - Cha, #5 - Pho, #6 - NO, #7 - Sac, #8 - Det, #9 - Min, #10 - Por, #11- Philly, #12 - OKC, #13 - Dal #14
Cavs will take Noel, making their selection of Tristan Thompson over Jonas Valanciunas even more annoying.
NEW YORK (AP) _ Cleveland Cavaliers win NBA Draft lottery and No. 1 overall pick.
"We made the Finals once!" - Dan Gilbert
Got to say it: No. 1 pick could go a long way towards enticing LeBron James back.
Draft lottery recap: Washington jumps to No. 3, Cleveland leapfrogs Orlando for No. 1...and the Sixers will pick 11th.
So now LeBron will be able to play with Nerlens Noel AND Kyrie Irving in a few years.
Third time since 2003 Cavs have won the lottery. Is Nerlens Noel on the way to Cleveland?
Nerlens Noel already declared himself the No. 1 pick. So that's settled.
I'm going to talk Adam Silver into going to Burning Man with me next year
Austin Rivers, Jimmer Fredette, Paul George, Brandon Jennings, Brook Lopez, Spencer Hawes -- recent No. 10 picks.
Hope cameras caught lillard and love side-eyeing the ridiculously rowdy cleveland group.
How long did it take for the first Irving, Noel and LeBron James tweet to go out
Nick Gilbert does it again: Cavs win lottery and will have the No. 1 pick for the third time in 10 years.
Can the Cavs select LeBron?
Cavaliers win the lottery for the second time in three years. Took Kyrie Irving in 2011. Heading right for Nerlens Noel in 2013.
Top 3 picks: Cleveland, Orlando and Washington.
The kid from Cleveland does it again! Nick Gilbert wins the No. 1 pick for second time in three years.
As things stand today Cleveland's board stands at Noel, Porter, and Len in that order. Noel makes Varejao more expendable.
Cleveland needs a small forward, but with Varejao so injury prone and just with one more year on his deal Nerlens Noel fits well there
We have the Cavs taking Nerlens Noel with the No. 1 pick in the 2013 Draft. Perfect for them actually ...
Now, Conspiracy! tweets until tip-off....
Too 3 picks in NBA Draft: 1. Cavs 2. Magic. 3. Wizards.
Draft lottery: 1. CLEV 2. ORL 3. WASH 4. CHAR 5. PHX 6. NOLA 7. SAC 8. DET 9. MINN 10. PORT 11. PHIL 12. OKC (from TOR) 13. DAL 14. UTAH
The Cavs should just name Nick Gilbert head coach
Cavs get first pick..2nd time in 3 years with 20 million cap room-bright days ahead for Cleveland
You know what's coming next....
Cavs win draft lottery, second time in three years.
now who is laughing?!?!
Clearly Keith Smart should have worn a bow tie
Raps should put Nick Gilbert on the payroll. Assistant to the president?
I'm sick of the Cavs winning the lottery.
Cavs win the No. 1 pick once again. What does David Kahn have to say about this.
Cavaliers with top pick in the draft, again. So Kyrie, No. 1 pick in 2013 and enough money for LeBron in 2014.
The only thing the Cleveland Cavaliers can win is the draft lottery.
"Can we select Andrew Wiggins. Please?" said Cleveland Cavaliers fans.
Cleveland gets the top pick. Cleveland contingent going nuts. Orlando is second, Washington third
Dan Gilbert's son, Nick, is the luckiest little guy on the planet.
Cleveland, Orlando and Washington are the top three picks in the draft.
Man, the Cavs should be really good again at some point. One would think.
LeBron still won't go back to Cleveland. DB
I gotta find a way to take that little dude to Vegas with me.
Nick Gilbert did it again. What's not to like? Nerlens to Cleveland sounds good
As for the Dan Gilbert family with the top pick: Lord have mercy with that fashion statement. At least they got $.
Cavaliers get top pick - again - that lil kid is seriously good luck for Cleveland
Let us in ! http://t.co/ucWfQJSMYF
Cleveland wins the lottery. Orlando, with a 25 percent chance at No. 1 pick, will pick second.
Let's get it on, Wizards-Cavs rivalry.
Cavaliers win the lottery.
Cavs get the No. 1 pick in the draft
Nick Gilbert FTW
Wiz get 3rd pick….Magic get 2nd..Cavs win lottery
3. Washington; 2. Orlando; 1. Cleveland

The #2 pick goes to Orlando. Cleveland gets #1 again!
3rd pick - Wizards
Wizards will pick 3rd.
The Orlando Magic will pick second in the draft.
OK, I'll take third.
Pick No. 3
Kevin Love's lucky Ricky Rubio is actually full-sized.
DraftLottery - #4 - Char, #5 - Pho, #6 - NOLA, #7 - Sac, #8 - Det, #9 - Min, #10 - Por, #11- Philly, #12 - OKC, #13 - Dal... and #14 -- Utah
The #3 pick goes to Washington
Had to be a very tough and long day for Bryan Colangelo. OKC gets the Lowry pick -12th overall
Kings get seventh pick in upcoming NBA Draft. KJ's number, by the way.
Bobcats, or soon-to-be-Hornets-again, have fallen backward for the second straight year.
"Hey, we lost all our good players because it sucks here, but we stay winning that lottery!" - Dan Gilbert. DB
Orlando, Washington, Cleveland. Winners of this year's draft lottery. And all three would most likely rather have 2 or 3 than 1!
Bradley Beal looking very nervous
Wizards, Cavs or Magic. Who's No. 1?
So this is something else Beal has done better than Wall?
Kings end up with the 7th pick. Had 7th pick 2 years ago and traded down, ended up with Jimmer
Dan Gilbert's jacket is about as putrid as his attempt to keep LeBron was. DB
If projected with 1 and dones…2014 draft will feature..Wiggins, Parker---wow.
No repeat in New York City. Pelicans drop one spot at draft lottery, will pick sixth on June 27
Magic assured of a top-three pick. We'll find out where after this commercial break.
Can we do the top three pick in Comic Sans? I'm not sure Dan Gilbert will be able to read the picks otherwise. DB
I was pulling for the Pelicans. I'm starting to like the name.
Orlando, Cleveland and Washington will have the top-3 picks in some order
The buzz in the room is so weird...beal smirking, Cleveland's always giant contingent making lots of noise
Wizards, Cavs make a jump in the lottery, great chance to add a player that would go 15th in most normal drafts.
Top 3 is a victory no matter what happens, by the way.
Cavs are in the top 3 of the draft. Are you feeling lucky?
It's tough being a Bobcats fan. Well, at least you can root for the Hornets.
Charlotte Bobcats, soon to be Hornets, drop to 4. Wizards, Magic and Cavaliers are top 3, order to be revealed shortly
The Bobcats have gotten the jump on the Andrew Wiggins lottery dropping to No. 4.
So much for new karma. Dropped from 2nd-worst record to 4th-best pick.
Cleveland back in the Top 3 of the draft lottery. Stay successful, Dan Gilbert.
From Jazz perspective - after #14 lottery went as well as you could hope no Western team got top 3 - Portland, Minnesota stayed in spots
The top three is down to the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards.
Losing the coin flip against the Wizards caused the Pistons to fall a spot in the lottery. Both finished 29-53. Lose coin flip, get top 3
Kings will pick No. 7. Kevin Johnson's old number was 7 so that's a good thing? Ok whatever. Lets all blame coach Smart.
Cavs, Magic and Wizards are in top 3 - order to be revealed after commercial
God really must hate the Bobcats.
DUDE. The guy sitting next to Gilbert looks geeked, like he'd trade a winning record for a chance to be able to attend the lottery each yr.
Raptors should have had Kyle Lowry sitting up there
Final 3 lottery teams..who gets number 1? Cavs, Wiz or Magic? Stay tuned.
Washington had a 30% chance of moving into the top 3
Well, well. Wizards and Cavs like life right now. Bobcats? Eh, not so much.
Why is Brek Shea sitting with Dan Gilbert at the NBA Lottery?
Nick Gilbert vs. Pat Williams down the stretch? That would be fantastic. Or could be Wizards, who have moved up.
Correction. Not Detroit. Final three will be Washington, Cleveland and Orlando
Ooooooh, Bobcats. You are so very, very sad.
BRADLEY BEAL LIFTS THE CURSE
Who is the least deserving of these 3 franchises?
Feeling Charlotte's pain.
Orlando, Cleveland and Washington get top 3 picks in lottery
Bobcats pick fourth.
Nobody beats the Wiz! (In the lottery, they lose games all the time)
Down to Wizards, Magic and Cavaliers for 1-2-3.
And the Bobcats get the fourth pick. Oof.
Charlotte dipped from 2 to 4? Yikes
Here are the 3 teams left with a chance of winning the lottery: Magic, Cavs, Wizards
Wizards move into the top three in the lottery. They should have a nice youthful core with Wall, Beal and a top-three pick.
So, final 3 are Cavs, Wizards and Magic. Eastern Conference, yo!
Of course, Cleveland might have something to say about that.
The Charlotte Bobcats cannot catch a break.
Go Cleveland go ...
Top three teams will be in, some order, Magic, Cavaliers and Wizards.
Bobcats will pick 4th.
I've had to tell myself at least 10 times that the Warriors aren't in the lottery.
The Pelicans' new logo looks more like a phoenix or a peacock.
Orlando Magic one of 3 remaining teams.

The lottery isn't over and I'm already excited about the possibility of Otto Porter to the Wizards.

Wolves will pick No. 9, right where slotted
Pistons will pick 8th.
Same goes for the Timberwolves.
YES YES YES
Kyle Lowry for the 12th pick in a supposedly weak draft: not a bad deal, even if it didn't work out this year.
Sixers 11th pick.
Man, I love the lottery.
All hold form picks 11 thru 14
Wolves strike out again!
Timberwolves will pick 9th.
Washington will be in the top-3
The Sixers had a 91 percent chance to get No. 11. They got it.
Washington moved up into the top 3
This lottery sucks
Everything is in order through the first six picks.
Trail Blazers will pick 10th.
11 - Phllly - as expected, 12 - Portland - as expected
Philadelphia didn't move up, will select 11. Portland too, selects 10. Minnesota same, selects 9
First five teams – Jazz, Mavs, Raps and Sixers, Blazers – don't move up.
The Thunder has landed the 12th pick in this year's draft via Toronto as part of the James Harden trade with Houston.
76ers will pick 11th.
Thunder will pick 12th, a selection that originally belonged to Raptors.
Utah, Dallas and Toronto all in order so far...
The Raptors give pick to OKC
So that's that, form holds and the Mavs will select 13th in the NBA Draft next month

Here we go with draft lottery...and utah will pick 14th
The Raptors will be slotted 12th. The pick will go to Oklahoma City.
Mavericks will pick 13th.
Toronto didn't move up, so OKC will select 12
Jazz will pick 14th
Well, that's a kick in the nuts, Utah.
The Utah Jazz will pick 14th. And that's that.
Utah did not defy its long-shot odds in the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery. Jazz will have picks Nos. 14, 21 and 46 in the June 27 draft.
Dallas didn't move up will select 13
Gilbert's son sounds like a young Steve-O.
Adam Silver is announcing order
c'mon, let's get these balls going.
Utah didn't move up, will select 14
Cavs will be out of lottery before LeBron wins three straight titles? Nice.
Pat Williams is going to hawk his next book right now.
Don't understand the lottery system? It determines only the top 3 picks. The remaining order is determined in reverse order of record.
Man, that little dude has some serious swagger. They make them tough and serious in Cleveland, starting young.
The draft lottery just ain't the same without David Kahn and Dan Gilbert's kid at it together, is it?
Oh, Nick Gilbert.
Dan Gilbert - the Wizard of Oz
"No one would find it enjoyable" as a reason for not showing the draw doesn't fly when this is deemed to be what we're supposed to find fun.
In the studio for the lottery reveal...
Fans at Cavs lottery party boo Sixers president Josh Harris as appears on TV. I bet that's the first time he's ever been booed.
Among lottery representatives, the kid from Cleveland looks like Donnie Nelson ... or vice versa.
Yo Monty Williams' goatee.
Whats more awkward: Colangelo representing Raptors or Smart representing Kings?
OK, NBA. Maybe get this draft lottery thing underway this year.
Love that Damian Lillard is sitting in for Portland. Maybe he can bring some ROY luck to those long odds.
Damian "Don't take my picture" Lillard representing the Blazers.
Colangelo looks like he lost fifteen pounds and went tanning for three hours in the last week.
when Raps don't move up does Colangelo get yanked off stage with cane old-school style and Troy weaver parachuted in?
Otto Porter ready to go all Granger up in this piece
Only in the NBA is the selection of the top half of the first round of the draft a 'thing.' David Stern is brilliant.
Kind of hoping Bosh photo bombs one of the representatives at the Lottery.
I forgot about the part where they randomly ask the representatives questions.
hahaha Donnie looks focused!
Someone screencap Keith Smart for me please.
The real winner of the lottery is Lil Wayne because no matter what, one of his favorite teams wins.
For those asking, the Heat don't have a first rounder, since Philly didn't make the playoffs.
We're about a minute away from finding out the draft order. Can Cavs grab No. 1 pick?
