    Default DRAFT LOTTERY on TSN2 at 8:30pmEST TUESDAY, MAY 17

    The 2011 Draft Lottery will be held on Tuesday, May 17 at 8:30pm EST.

    As everyone - hopefully - knows, the Raptors finished with the 3rd worst record and therefore the third most combination of balls - 156 of the 1000. The Raptors cannot select less than 6th. Here are the odds:

    1st - 15.6%
    2nd - 15.7%
    3rd - 15.6%
    4th - 22.6%
    5th - 26.5%
    6th - 4%

    Here is a link for all the odds for all the picks for all the teams.

    I say we win 4th or 5th to be realistic, don't get your hopes up. I can see some bullshit like Utah getting 3rd.

    So the Raptors finished with the 3rd worst record... but have better odds of landing the 5th pick than they do the 3rd?
    Stuff like this is why the lottery always comes out weird.

    If you click the link, MIN has the highest chance of getting 1st at 25% but they have a 35.7% chance of picking 4th - go figure.

    Ugh. That's nuts. 2nd worst record is also most likely to get the 4th pick. 3rd and 4th worst are most likely to get the 5th pick. 5th worst most likely to get the 6th pick. The odds seem to work out from Pick No. 6 down. I guess it has something to do with the number of eligible teams. But if you finished 3rd worst, your highest odds should be getting the 3rd pick.

    The worst team in the league has a 25% chance of landing the #1 pick.
    Or a 75% chance of NOT getting it.

    When phrased this way, sounds kinda crappy doesn't it? haha

    Keep in mind everyone has a shot at picking in the top 3 and no one can slip more than 3 places.
