LA Clippers win the Blake Griffin Sweepstakes

May 19, 2009

The Los Angeles Clippers stole the show in L.A. by winning the Blake Griffin Sweepstakes by drawing the first pick in the NBA Lottery.  The Clippers had the third best chance of winning the lottery with 13.8% odds.  Memphis jumped up into the second spot with the sixth best odds and Oklahoma City jump into third with the fourth best odds.  Sacramento went into the lottery the statistical favorite to get the #1 pick at 25%, but they fell to the 4th pick.  Washington had the second best odds at 19.9%, but fell to the 5th pick.  There are still only three teams to have won the lottery with the best odds since 1990.  That isn’t how it’s supposed to work.  It’s a pathethic system.  Minnesota once again did not move up.  They never hav in their history.  They slid down to the sixth pick despite fifth best odds.

Here”s the Draft Order:

1. L.A. Clippers
2. Memphis
3. Oklahoma City
4. Sacramento
5. Washington
6. Minnesota
7. Golden State
8. New York
9. Toronto
10. Milwaukee
11. New Jersey
12. Charlotte
13. Indiana
