Nick Gilbert burst onto the scene at the 2011 lottery, representing the Cavaliers as they won the draw – getting the right to draft Kyrie Irving – and proclaiming, “What’s not to like?”

Well, this.

Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com:

The son of Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert will undergo another brain surgery in Detroit this week to treat a tumor.

Nick Gilbert, who is 21, was born with neurofibromatosis, a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body. He had surgery to remove a brain tumor more than 10 years ago and is treated off and on with chemotherapy.

Nick was hospitalized last week due to complications from the latest tumor.

Hopefully, the surgery goes well and Nick makes a full recovery.
