Tuesday night is the NBA Draft Lottery and it's a day many Bulls fans have been waiting for since last year's NBA Draft, in which the Bulls chose to trade their franchise player, Jimmy Butler.
The 10th pick could go to either the Philadelphia 76ers or the Boston Celtics via the Los Angles Lakers. However, it certainly was not what was expected when the franchise dealt Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics this past offseason and they got the Brooklyn Nets pick as part of their return.
Tonight's 2018 NBA Draft Lottery will once again determine the futures of the league's most talent-challenged clubs. The New York Knicks were speculated as a landing spot, and they have a 1.7 percent chance at the top pick. Chance for top-three pick: 1.8 percent. When I didn't have belief in myself to be a coach, I think Doc said, 'You know, you're going to be a great coach someday.' And I really didn't believe it because I really didn't want to coach when I played for Doc. The league passed a draft lottery reform that will go into place in 2019 in an attempt to lessen tanking.
I've still got DeAndre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III as my top two, though whether they stick there will be determined by who wins the lottery. And that's not even mentioning how ridiculous that core would be if Markelle Fultz becomes anything close to what he was originally projected as.
It's not quite 2008 odds, but they are stacked against the Bulls on Tuesday as they enter with the sixth-best odds to take the top picks.
There's a 2.9 percent chance the Lakers pick could fall between Nos. Yes, but they don't begin until next year. Nepotism will be at play for the Cavaliers as Dan Gilbert's son Nick once again takes to the stage. LA Clippers hope he brings them luck as they have two shots to move up and are the only team with two picks in the top 14. Chance for top-three pick: 9.9 percent.
A lot of people would have the Suns at No. 1 on this list and I wouldn't try to tell those people they're wrong. White would have been better served to actually be a mailman, because on the floor he was no Mailman.White started 66 games with the Mavs in five seasons, and never averaged double digits in anything.
DALLAS, TX - CIRCA 1990: Hakeem Olajuwon #34 of the Houston Rockets battles for a rebound with Sam Perkins #41 of the Dallas Mavericks during an NBA basketball game circa 1990 at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas.
And that was probably a good thing for Memphis if we're being honest.
NY drafted 6-foot-5, 190-pound point guard Frank Ntilikina with the No. 8 overall pick past year.
