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.

Kyrie and Derrick are good players, but I don't think they would be drafted in the top 5 of most drafts. Maybe the foreign players will surprise us 5 years from now. There will be a lot of hole-filling in this draft, no franchise-changing players.
Same ol story cleveland my home never get a decent break . sheesh 2 lottery picks and nobody spectacular to draft ..that grey overcast sky still remains over the cities sports teams ... go cavs go tribe go browns maybe someday the sun will shine on the best location in the nation ...
Never get a break? Didn't the article say they drafted Lebron James in O3?
I predicted that would happen! COOOOOL!
How confident can you be in a guy who played in 11 games last year?
I predict he wont play in too many more than that next season. The stars and cosmos fortell it.
