Nick Gilbert Returns With Friends For More NBA Lottery Luck

The 2011 NBA Lottery was the perfect night for Cavs fans, a small consolation towards soothing the pain of LeBron's departure and the first big step towards rebuilding. Nick Gilbert stole the show that night, with his "What's not to like?" phrase that became a rallying slogan in Cleveland. Young Nick will be representing the Cavaliers again in the 2012 NBA Lottery, and he's taking the same band of friends that brought so much good fortune last year. The group includes Browns' fan favorites Joe Haden, Josh Cribbs, and Bernie Kosar. A full list of the Cavs representation after the jump:

Also joining Nick and Dan Gilbert at the NBA Lottery in New York will be some familiar faces from last year's very successful trip, including Nick's younger brother. Cavaliers Vice-Chairman Jeff Cohen will again represent the team in the actual lottery room where the ping pong balls are drawn. Team Cavs for the lottery will also include Cavaliers Vice-Chairman Nate Forbes; Cavaliers guard and 2011 #1 Draft pick, as well as 2011-12 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kyrie Irving; Cleveland Browns players Josh Cribbs and Joe Haden; and Browns legend and current Gladiators special advisor Bernie Kosar.
