When asked about his dad calling him a hero, Nick answered with, "What's not to like?" which took on a life of its own. He was dubbed the franchise's good luck charm when they won the No. 1 pick.

Dan Gilbert is the founder of Quicken Loans and the chairman of JACK Entertainment.

Nick, who Greene noted attends Michigan State, has 25 percent vision in his left eye and can not see out of his right.

Gilbert is on the board of directors at the Children's Tumor Foundation.
