2011 NBA Draft Lottery: Dan Gilbert Son Nick Mans Up for the Cavaliers
The 2011 NBA Draft Lottery will solidify the final draft order for the league. The bounce of the ping pong determine whether your team gets a sure thing or will have to roll the dice on someone less certain in this NBA Draft. Will they trade up, down, or take their chances where they're at? Bleacher Report gives you the latest scoop on all things draft-related, reactions from around the league, and speculation on what things mean for your team.
Dan Gilbert's son Nick is representing the Cleveland Cavaliers at the lottery.
If sending a 14-year-old to represent an NBA team sounds like sending a boy to do a man's job, think again.
Nick Gilbert is the 2011 Children's Tumor Foundation ambassador, and according to this tweet his Twitter followers have raised more than $22,000 for the foundation—today.
Gilbert was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow throughout the body.
"Despite enduring brain surgery, the loss of vision in one of his eyes, four long rounds of chemotherapy and countless visits and time in doctors offices and hospitals," Dan Gilbert said on the Children's Tumor Foundation website, "he has emerged as the happiest and most optimistic person I know."
If the Cavs can land a player as hard-nosed as Nick Gilbert with their lottery pick, the rebuilding will be underway.
