Is the NBA draft lottery rigged? I will be paying close attention to the lottery this year. Blake Griffin, an Oklahoma-native, is going to be the number one overall pick this coming draft. Oklahoma is currently on the outside looking in at getting him, but last year Chicago got Chicago-native Derrick Rose first overall after having less than a ten percent chance of landing the first pick. Cleveland landed Ohio-native LeBron James in the 2003 draft. The friggin' ping-pong balls aren't even shown. If the Thunda get the number one overall pick, I've sworn to myself to stop watching NBA basketball (until the Pistons get the number one pick).
