Dan Gilbert Loves Superstition, Has Jokes

After winning the NBA Draft Lottery last year (COUGH with the Clippers' lottery pick, not his own COUGH), Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has upped the superstition this year. His plan last year: have his son Nick, who has a genetic nerve disorder, be a good luck charm. His plan this year: send many Cleveland legends in addition to Nick, and put Nick on the spot, sort of.

Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Gilbert said Browns personalities Bernie Kosar, Joshua Cribbs and Joe Haden will be at the lottery in New York, along with Irving.

"We are very superstitious with this stuff," Gilbert said.

Nick will try to recreate his magic from last year when the Cavs got the top pick.

"We're going to bring Nick to the lottery," Gilbert said. "If he doesn't get the first pick, he'll be grounded all summer."

Very funny, Dan. Very funny.
