Clip submission earns Cavaliers fan a trip to NBA Draft Lottery (video)


The Cleveland Cavaliers organization made two spaces available for fans on the team’s upcoming trip to the NBA Draft Lottery. One space was given to a member of Wine & Gold United, the team’s exclusive club for season ticket holders, through a random drawing. The other space was awarded to the Cavs fan who submitted the most creative video after “a social media call to action” was tweeted out last week via Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s official Twitter account.

Cavs fan Gerry Burma won the first spot via the random drawing, saying, “I’m surprised, shocked, and very excited about attending. If this is what Wine & Gold United is all about—you’ve made me a believer!”

And the winner of the aforementioned “social media call to action” was Tate Moore, who submitted the below clip.


Last Friday, May 17th, Gilbert put out the call to his @cavsdan Twitter followers to produce and tweet a :30 second or less original video that creatively expressed why they should travel with him to New York for the lottery proceedings and help represent the Cavaliers. @RoyTateMoore did just that with a winning submission that demonstrated his positive karma to prove that he is “one lucky dude.” Below is the winning video @RoyTateMoore submitted. “I am so excited and thankful for this amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to be a part of this night and help represent the Cavaliers with Dan and Nick,” said Moore.

Moore will accompany various team dignitaries including Dan Gilbert and his son, Nick, who stole the show at the 2011 draft lottery courtesy of the below video, where he demonstrates the reasons why he should be invited along for the ride:

Clever stuff. He’s like the Kige Ramsey of Cleveland Cavaliers fans. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.
