The Cleveland Cavaliers are at it again. On Tuesday evening, the Cavs won the 2014 NBA Draft lottery, earning their second No. 1 pick in as many years. Cleveland general manager David Griffin reacted accordingly.
As did ESPN's Bill Simmons.

THE LEAGUE HAS CLEARLY FIXED EVERYTHING IN FAVOR OF THE CAVS (except for regular games and playoffs. it's an oddly limited conspiracy)— J. D. Hatings (@basquiatball) May 21, 2014

I was getting so close to convincing myself that James Young or Doug McDermott would be a steal too. Oh well.— Conrad Kaczmarek (@ConradKazNBA) May 21, 2014
Congratulations to Cleveland. Try not to draft another Anthony Bennett, ok?
