Its funny how many people don't understand how the NBA Draft Lottery works, in that the only places that are "drawn" for are the top 3, then it goes by record after that.

It's the reason why the team with the worst record has the best chance of being the #4 pick out of every lottery team.... see Boston in the Oden/Durant draft.

I tried to explain to a non-sports friends about why I was so excited for tomorrow.

Him: So you are watching a game?

Me: No it's the draft lottery

Him: So they pick which guys go where

Me: No, they're just picking ping pong balls to determine to the order of the top three picks. We won't know who gets picked where for a couple months.

Him: And this is fun to watch?

The discussion made me realize how absurd the whole thing is...and yet it still feels like Christmas eve. I have a problem.

Until our dreams of franchise changers are crushed. I'm going to say a prayer before bed and I'm not even religious.

The Raps lucked into the #1 pick fairly recently, so I can't really feel too bad if the lucks gods don't smile their way again...but damn would Blake look good in Raptor red. Then send Bosh off to GSW for Anthony Randolph/SG/ +pick to fill whatever hole is left.

I'd like to see OKC Thunder get the number 1 pick.

It would annoy a lot of people, but man that lineup would be great to watch.

Then if they sign a shooting guard e.g. Ben Gordon (or trade for one using Jeff Green) imagine this lineup:

PG: Westbrook
SG: Gordon / decent SG
SF: Durant
PF: Griffin
C: Anyone 7 ft tall

I just don't want Washington to get it, that would be seriously undeserved.

Yup. Teams that don't deserve it, shouldn't get pick:

OKC (Too many high picks)
Washington (Tanked on purpose)
Toronto (They won lottery with Bargnani)
Milwaukee (They won lottery with Bogut)


Teams that deserve it:

Sacramento Kings (Great fans, they truly need a great player)
NY Knicks (Because we are awesome and it would be great for league)

I'm feeling a Toronto pick at #3, giving us a tough time picking between Thabeet and one of the swingman prospects.
