The Draft Lottery is actually kind of a sad event to watch. It is literally the worst 14 teams in the NBA waiting to see if they will get first picking of the young college stars. So basically if you are Anthony Davis (the likely number 1 pick) you are sitting there waiting to find out which shitty team you will be playing for next year. Maybe that’s why Davis was sporting a white t-shirt and baseball cap rather than a suit. It is also funny that they try to drag out this less than 10 minute ceremony into a half hour. The best part about watching the Lottery is getting a reminder of the teams you forgot existed like the Toronto Raptors.Yes there is still an NBA team in Canada.
Here are the winners of the draft or losers depending on how you look at it:
1. New Orleans Hornets- This was actually an upset since everyone thought it would be the Charlotte Bobcats. Now this is the team that will most likely snag Anthony Davis. Kind of suspicious that New Orleans won and David Stern (Commissioner of the NBA) owned them up until recently.
2. Charlotte Bob Cats- So sad for Michael Jordon. The Bob Cats could have really used Davis.
3. Washington Wizards
4. Cleveland Cavaliers
