LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly folks, conspiracy anyone? YEs I know it's a "lottery" but this has gone back to the 1st draft lottery when the Knicks miraculously got the 1st pick and took future HOF Patrick Ewing.
Portland nabs #1 pick with what, a 1.3% chance and the Bulls vault back to a force when they nabbed the #1 pick with a 3% chance. I could be mistaken but 1 of these 2 teams had a 3% some chance, and the other a 1% some chance.
Charlotte needed that pick more than anyone. Hornets got dismantled this past offseason losing West and CP3. Gordon out most of the year and Kaman likely gone. Aminu = garbage and the Minnesota pick was trash as well.
Hornets miraculously find a new owner, get awarded and ALL STAR GAME AGAIN and SOMEHOW end up with the #1 pick in the draft.
NBA is a flat out joke. Cleveland tanked to get the #1 pick to land home-town hero LEbron james to boost ratings, Chicago has a next to nothing chance like Portland ( who has been a force since forever ) to help their franchises and now the Hornets get the #1 pick.
Anthony Davis is going to be an incredible defensive player and his best offensive numbers are probably going to be 12-18ppg tops. I hope he bombs and that franchise sucks for years. I hope Gordon gets offered a max deal by Indiana or somewhere else and the Hornets are forced to match it or let him walk. I'm done.
