2011 NBA Draft Results: Reaction and Analysis for All the Night's Picks

The 2011 NBA Draft is an interesting character study. It can make a team, it can enhance a team and it can also break a team.

For the Cleveland Cavaliers, having two of the first four picks—including the No. 1 overall selection—will certainly make the club and push it further along on the road to playoff contender in the post-LeBron James era.

For others, like the world champion Dallas Mavericks, the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and the other "haves" in the world of haves and have-nots, a good draft choice can only enhance the talent that's already there.

And for others, the draft can be a deal-breaker. The wrong choice can kill a franchise for years. Witness the brilliant selections made the New York Knicks in the last half-dozen years.

So tonight, Bleacher Report will break down every pick and offer up instant reactions and analysis on every player and every team.
