Cavs win #1 overall pick

The Cleveland Cavaliers will have two of the first four picks in the 2011 NBA Draft, which should help in the rebuilding effort. There is no LeBron James in this draft, but there are some good players that will become stars, or at least solid starters. My early guess is that the Cavs will take Kyrie Irving, who has a chance to become a franchise point guard. He will need to mature as a floor leader, but he’s lightning quick, has good vision and can shoot it.

The pick was originally obtained as part of the Baron Davis trade with the Clippers. It had a 2.8% chance of becoming the #1 pick.
