NBA Draft Order Set Following Lottery Results; Let The Mock Drafts Begin!

New, 1 comment

The 2011 NBA Draft order isn't the most important thing in the world, but it's probably up there as NBA fans attempt to grasp at every bit of news prior to the impending doom that will be brought about via the all but certain NBA lockout. And, following Tuesday night's NBA Lottery, fans will know exactly where there team will pick its next superstar.

Obviously the NBA Draft lottery results mean more to fans of the worst teams in the NBA as those were the teams affected (the millions and millions or Miami Heat fans probably weren't even aware the lottery was taking place), but the annual event is always prone to shaking up the NBA atmosphere -- at least for a moment -- when infusing bad teams with new talent.

Is the Lottery rigged? Is karma real? Are the Cavaliers going to pick the next LeBron James?
