Lottery Goes on Without Bucks

It was very strange watching the NBA Lottery results this year, and not seeing anyone representing the Milwaukee Bucks. It is awesome that they made the playoffs this year, but the NBA Lottery was always a big night in my life for Bucks basketball. You never know when your team might get the first pick in the draft. Well that happened again Tuesday night as the Wizards had a 10.3% chance of getting the number one pick. Well, the number one pick is what they got, as the Nets dropped to the third pick and the 76ers took the second pick.

John Wall seems to be the shoe in for the first pick for the Washington Wizards, but after that anything could happen. Your Milwaukee Bucks have the 15th pick in the draft this year, which is the first draft pick out of the lottery. As far as who they may take, as of now Gordon Hayward's name is being talked about a lot. If you don't know who that is he is the guy that led Butler to the NCAA finals, and he missed the half court shot by about a foot that would have given the Bulldogs the win at the buzzer. He has a nice shot, but I don't know if he is ready for the NBA yet. This is just talk of course, and talk is cheap so lets not get into this to much.

As far as how the rest of the lottery ended up here was the outcome.

1. Washington Wizards
2. Philadelphia 76ers
3. New Jersey Nets
4. Minnesota Timberwolves
5. Sacramento Kings
6. Golden State Warriors
7. Detroit Pistons
8. L.A. Clippers
9. Utah Jazz
10. Indiana Pacers
11. New Orleans Hornets
12. Memphis Grizzles
13. Toronto Raptors
14. Houston Rockets

As cool as the NBA Lottery is, it only lasts ten minutes. A seven game playoff series lasts a lot longer then that, so I would take the playoffs over the lottery any day of the week. Lets hope that the Bucks won't have to rely on the ping pong balls for their draft pick next year either.
