For the 3rd time in 4 years, the post LeBron Cavs have landed the #1 pick. Call it lucky, call it a 2nd shot after drafting Anthony Bennett last year, call it a conspiracy that belongs in the files with Patrick Ewing, Penny Hardaway and Anthony Davis or just call it BS like many people on Twitter last night…me personally, I just wish I could call Mallory Eden, the daughter of the Bucks owner, to congratulate her on the 2nd pick.
One person I wouldn’t want to call is Cavs owner Dan Gilbert who said he was “speechless” when he heard his team was once again given the #1 pick and then said “that’s not a funny joke?” Nope, a joke would be if the Cavs still sucked with three #1 picks on their roster.
Here’s a few other reactions from other NBA players when they heard the news.
