It's official: The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently the best team in the NBA at the draft lottery.

For the second year in a row and the third time in four years, the Cavs will make the No. 1 overall selection in the NBA Draft. Cleveland entered the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery with just a 1.7% chance of winning but defied the odds to land the top choice in draft stocked with talented college players like Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, Jabari Parker of Duke and Julius Randle of Kentucky.

The Milwaukee Bucks had the league's worst regular-season record for the 2013-2014 season and the best odds of winning the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery at 25 percent. Milwaukee would settle for the No. 2 pick.
