Kyrie Irving: Will Duke Point Guard Be Selected No. 1 by Cleveland Cavaliers?
Is Kyrie Irving a Lock for the No. 1 Overall Draft Pick?
The 2011 NBA Lottery took place last night, and the big time winner, or loser, is the Cleveland Cavaliers. The only reason I say loser is because this draft class is considered on the of weakest ever. Not too many scouts and experts are thrilled about the available prospects.
Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams have been the consensus top two for awhile now. We were all waiting on the draft order to really decide who would be No. 1. Is it still a tight race between the two? Or is Kyrie Irving a lock for the top pick?
The Duke point guard only played 11 games this past season, but everyone is in love with what he brings to the table. Derrick Williams proved in the NCAA Tournament that he can be a dominant force all over the court. Who will go No. 1 overall?

Right now it would appear that Irving is the favorite for the No. 1 overall pick. He was at the lottery selection last night and I'm sure Dan Gilbert had a few words with him.
ESPN Insider Chad Ford took to twitter last night to let the world know who he thinks will be the No. 1 pick.
I think there's zero suspense at the top. I'm told Cavs love Irving.
While that may be true, the Cavs shouldn't overlook Derrick Williams. The forward from Arizona can play all over the floor. He can post up strong, as well as knock down the three pointer. Williams can also take it strong to the hoop. What more could you want from a 6'8" 241-pound forward?
If it were me, I would go with Williams and then pick the point guard at No. 4. Kemba Walker and Brandon Knight should both be available at that spot and both would work really well with Williams.
