Gotta love the NBA draft lottery. Fixed and crooked as it gets. This is why nobody cares about the NBA.

David Stern and the NBA is the biggest joke around. Fixed Drafts to let teams they "WANT" to win get the top pick. If I was the T-wolves I wouldn't even send anyone next year to the draft and embarrass the hell out of the NBA. Just have a "We Will pick where ever You want us to pic" sign for BONEHEAD Sern and The NBA Jokers to see. This LEegue is a Bunch of thugs run by a bunch of Overpaid Fat White GUYS.

Draft lottery is a joke. NBA is a joke. This smells of being fixed. All the announcers could talk about was the Cavs owner kid. Guess what they one the 1st pick. Oh well, the Twolves would have probably picked Ralph Sampson III anyhow.

YAWWWNNNNN!!! Who cares? The Wolves draw in about as many as the Lynx do. Send them packing. MN doesn't need a basketball team...we have enough thugs roaming the streets.

So the Cavs get the #1 pick a year after LeBron takes his talents to South Beach? Who didn't see that one coming?

Would ya look at that? Would ya just look at that? Look at that! The "Con" man is as clueless as a elephant is on a bicycle as to how to run a team! Talking in circles and not saying anything that makes sense! Glen - fire him dude!! Either that or sign on for your team to be the Globetrotters game day opponent!

I understand they didn't get the pick they had the best chance to get, but this is a two player draft and they got the second pick. Unlike past years when they always ened up in the second tier, this time they will get a potential star player.

Glass half full for once..........unless Kahn starts making trades again.

I just hope the Wolves don't screw this one up. This isn't the greatest draft anyway, falling to number 2 this year isn't that big of a deal. This isn't a year where there was one prize in it. The often injured Duke point guard Irving doesn't excite me. The kid from Arizona Williams I think has more upside than Irving.

The NBA screws the Timwolves again. The NBA lottery is a staged event. I'm sure Cleveland was guaranteed the 1st pick when LeBron left.......

Then they should trade the starting 5 by your standards, none of them really play defense.

How messed up is this franchise when they wasted three of the top 18 picks on point guards just two years ago and they still can't find anyone to do the job?

How is this bad? A number two pick is bad when the top three are a lottery!!!! Derrick Williams is a monster and you can never have TOO much talent!!!

how pathetic is it that we are still looking for a PG with all of the first round picks we have had in the last few years.
the draft lottery is such a joke, how bout you guys actually do it so we all can see, otherwise these 'rigged' allegations will never stop.
seriously though, cavs loose lebron, send owners sick little boy and guess what? you guys get the #1 and #4 pick in the draft. god pups area a disgrace.
