With Kyrie Irving and Nerlens Noel, the Cleveland Cavaliers should be a longstanding force in the NBA.

Defeating odds with some luck, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the rights to the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft on Tuesday night.

Despite being removed from a hideous 24-58 campaign, the Cavaliers are an organization on the brink of blooming.

Averaging 22.5 points, 5.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds over 59 contests, Kyrie Irving is ready to become the preeminent point guard in the association.

An Australian-American who the Cavs chose out of Duke first overall in 2011, the 21-year-old Irving is a truly unique player with limitless potential.

As the 2012 Rookie of the Year, the 6-foot-3, 190 pound Irving is capable of guiding a squad to glory if surrounded by an efficient supporting cast.

Thankfully for Cavs fans, Cleveland general manager Chris Grant has already acquired 21-year-old shooting guard Dion Waiters and 22-year-old forward Tristan Thompson to back Irving.

Now, provided the former Kentucky Wildcats center is entirely healed from a torn ACL suffered in February, the Cavs will take Nerlens Noel on June 27.

Quick, fast, athletic and an amazing leaper and finisher around the rim, the 19-year-old Noel is poised to become a dominant force in the paint.

A First team All-SEC selection, the 6-foot-11, 206 pound Noel should mature into one of the league’s best big men within a few seasons.

After hometown turncoat LeBron James abandoned “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Capital of the World” in favor of “The Sunshine State” in July 2010, basketball essentially became a profane word in Cleveland.

Roughly three years later, with a quartet of lottery talent at their disposal, the Cleveland Cavaliers are a burgeoning juggernaut in the NBA.
