Cavaliers take Irving with No. 1 pick in NBA Draft

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected Kyrie
Irving with the No. 1 pick, making the Duke point guard their first
of two choices in the top four of the NBA draft.

Despite playing 11 games in his only college season because of a toe injury on his right foot, Irving was too good to pass up
Thursday night with the Cavaliers' first No. 1 pick since taking
LeBron James in 2003.

The draft gives them a chance to quickly rebuild less than a
year after James left for Miami, as they also own the No. 4
selection.

Only a few miles from where he grew up, Irving received loud
cheers after the pick was announced. He has said he has no health
concerns, making him the likely best choice in what's been called a
weak draft.
