NBA Draft operates via a goofy lottery system. There has to be a better alternative than picking ping-pong balls out of a machine.
The Cleveland Cavaliers claimed the No. 1 overall pick at the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.
The Washington Wizards vaulted from the No. 8 spot to third in the NBA lottery, with the Cleveland Cavaliers once again getting the top pick.
Another NBA draft lottery, another shot for the Wizards to strike it rich occurs when representatives of the 14 non-playoff qualifiers gather tonight in Times Square for the made-for-television event.
