NBA stars react in disbelief to Cavs No.1 lottery win

Published Add your comment

The basketball god's definitely seem to be smiling on the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs came out from last nights draft lottery with the number one again, the third time they've had the honour in four years and rival NBA stars genuinely couldn't believe it.

Brandon Jennings of the Detroit Pistons predicted the outcome before the announcement saying "Dawg Cavs better not get the #1 pick again" Unlucky Brandon.

DeMarcus Cousins was up next and he could barely muster a response, simply tweeting out "lol" and "I'm honestly not surprised". And it was Kendall Marshall who added "I think CLE practices voodoo." The LA Lakers point guard obviously wanting some kind of exorcism performed in Ohio.

Patrick Patterson of the Toronto Raptors and Michael Jackson impressions predicted the pick just like Jennings before him. "Cavs in the top 3.. Bout to get #1.. U heard it here first IF it happens.. #haha" he said before adding "I CALLED IT HAHAHA. How crazy is this.. 1.7% chance."

The Nuggets Ty Lawson, obviously disappointed with his sides number 11 pick, turned into a hater: "How many number one picks is Cleveland gonna get smh... Yes I'm hating"

And even athletes from other sports got involved. Chris Harris, cornerback for the Denver Broncos had his say, piping up with "How cavs get the #1 pick every year" with the Lakers man Xavier Henry replying with a simple "foreal".

Kyrie Irving obviously wasn't complaining though. The Cleveland point guard gets a new top-tier teammate and he was stoked at the news, rubbing it in a bit as well saying "Luck of the Ping pong balls...Very exciting!!!"
