Nick Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers have beaten the NBA lottery odds again.
The Cavaliers won the lottery for the second time in three years and have the No. 1 pick for the June 27 draft.
Gilbert, owner Dan Gilbert’s bowtie-wearing son, was on stage again for the victory. (And 10 years ago, with the first draft pick, the Cavs selected LeBron James.)
He won in 2011, a pick the Cavs used on eventual Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving.
The Orlando Magic fell back one spot to No. 2, while the Washington Wizards vaulted from the No. 8 spot to third.
Cleveland indeed hit the jackpot the first two times it won the lottery, earning the opportunity to select four-time league MVP LeBron James in 2003 and current All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving in 2011.
