It was no big surprise who the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted with their number #1 pick last night. The Cavs picked Duke freshman point guard Kyrie Irving, who played only 11 games last season because of a toe injury.

Their #4 pick, however, was a bit of surprise. The Cavs selected Texas freshman forward Tristan Thompson, passing on Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas. Thompson's selection could mean the Cavs have interest in trading power forward J.J. Hickson and other players.

Kyrie Irving says he's ready to help the Cavs rebuild
