The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kyrie Irving with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft Thursday.
Irving, who averaged 17.7 points a game in his only season with the Duke Blue Devils, is from West Orange, New Jersey.
He played in 11 games last season, scoring in double figures each time and averaging 4.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds, before being sidelined with a toe injury.
The last time the Cavaliers had the No. 1 pick in the draft they selected Lebron James in 2003.
