Cleveland Cavaliers are Stacked!

We don’t follow the NBA much, but we are impressed with what the Cleveland Cavaliers accomplished today.

With arguably one of the best players in the NBA, LeBron James, they acquired Shaquille O’Neal in a trade today from the Phoenix Suns.

And to top it off, they picked up the best 6th Man in the NCAA, Danny Green from North Carolina with the 16th pick in the 2nd round.

North Carolina’s Other Prospects

Surprisingly enough, our favorite, Tyler Hansbrough, was taken 13th in the 1st round of the draft by the Indiana Pacers.  Many have compared Hansbrough to Christian Lattener.  A hard worker but not enough to survive in the NBA.

Ty Lawson was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves and immediately traded to the Denver Nuggets for a future 1st round pick.

Wayne Ellington was drafted by the Timberwolves as well in the 1st round with the 28th pick.
