In elementary school, my favorite books were the “choose your own adventure” ones. I enjoyed being able to exercise limited creativity by picking the end of my Goosebumps book. Just going through the door on the right could land you in a locked room with some creepy dolls moving slowly towards you to hold your hand. Ringing the doorbell to the door on your left could lead you to tea with an older woman that needs friendship. I’m not sure what’s worse.
Getting the top pick has set up the Cavs with a wonderful “choose your own adventure” situation. The team has the opportunity to take the Jabari Parker path, the Joel Embiid path, or the Andrew Wiggins path. Each one leads to a new room: some rooms are dark and dreary filled with first round playoff exits, others are bright from the shining gold of Larry O’Brien trophies.
