Does Uncertainty Still Exist in Cavaliers' NBA Draft Selection?

With just hours to go before Thursday night's NBA Draft, there's still no clear cut choice for the Cleveland Cavaliers at number one.

Of course, the main emphasis from Alex Kennedy's tweet above is on the fact that the Magic are interested enough in Nerlens Noel to snatch him up as the number two overall selection in Thursday's NBA Draft, should the Cavaliers opt to let him fall.

Still, the fact that Cleveland's decision is not a sure bet at number one even further proves how unique this draft really is. What's more, suggesting Len (in lieu of Noel) could be this year's top selection over some other very talented players also shows just how committed NBA executives are to taking advantage of promising big man talent over any other kind.

Interesting stuff. Who do you believe goes number one?
