Dan Gilbert’s son Nick is home after brain surgery

CLEVELAND– There’s happy news for Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and his family. Gilbert tweeted out on Wednesday that his son Nick, who underwent brain surgery last month, is back home.

The 21-year-old was born with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form throughout the body. He’s currently a student at Michigan State University.

Nick gained national attention as the organization’s good luck charm during the 2011 NBA Draft Lottery. He served as the team’s representative during the televised broadcast, wearing what has become his signature bowtie and thick glasses.
