Take of the day

Just keep this is in mind as you think about March Madness and you think about the basketball you’re watching and the takes forming in your head: The best two Cavs draft picks didn’t play a single game in the NCAA tournament. Success in the tournament is not everything, even if it’s fun.

As of today, the Cavs have the third-worst record in the NBA. They have a 52.1 percent chance of landing a top-four pick and a 14 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. They could pick as low as No. 7 overall.

Today’s Tankathon sim yielded the Cavs the fourth overall pick in the draft. They have a 12 percent chance of landing the fourth overall pick.
