The Cleveland Cavaliers defied the odds, by jumping from a projected third place selection to the first place position in Tuesday night’s NBA draft lottery. The conventional wisdom is to take the best available big man, and then cross your fingers that he doesn’t turn into the next Sam Bowie, or Greg Oden. The Cleveland franchise has had its fair share of set backs and heartaches in recent years. The most notable was the loss of their hometown hero and star LeBron James. James left the Cavaliers franchise in 2010 to join the Miami Heat. LeBron led Miami to the NBA championship last year, and is on pace to do the same thing again this season. He also won the fourth MVP award of his illustrious career, while Cleveland missed the playoffs for a third straight season. So the question is will the 2013 draft deliver the type of impact player that James was during his stint with the Cavalier franchise? To determine that we need to breakdown the two potential first overall NBA draft choices.
