NBA Draft: Cleveland Cavaliers win 2014 Draft Lottery

The Cleveland Cavaliers have won the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery, earning the right to the number one pick in this year’s draft.

That’s a statement that has been written three times in the last four years, after the Cavaliers picked first in 2011 and 2013.

Cleveland won the draft despite having a 1.7 percent chance of doing so.

The Cavaliers won the lottery in 2011 after compiling a 26-game losing streak in their first season post-LeBron James. The Cavs selected Kyrie Irving.

In 2013, the Cavaliers leapt up again, this time selecting Anthony Bennett.
