On Wednesday March 30th the NBA draft lottery awarded the New Orleans Hornets the top pick in the NBA draft that will be held on June 28th. Odds are the Hornets will pick Kentucky star center Anthony Davis. At six-foot-ten and with a wingspan of seven-foot-four, Davis is a defensive force with emerging offensive talents. After leading his team to a national championship, analysts believe Davis can become a literal centerpiece to change the fortunes of any NBA team he joins. That task falls onto the Hornets.
The lottery win by the Hornets adds fuel to a fire of speculation that the league is in some way putting its fingers into what is meant to be a diplomatic process. Much controversy has swirled around the franchise since last off season when a trade sending guard Chris Paul to the Lakers was stopped by the league. Perhaps some compensation is the arrival of Davis.
The second pick was won by the Charlotte Bobcats. The Bobcats finished the season with the worst winning percentage in league history. The third pick went to the Wizards.
Top draft prospects include Connecticut center Andre Drummond, Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson and Harrison Barnes of North Carolina.
Beyond Anthony Davis the draft board seems thin on superstar talent. All the teams in the top of the draft certainly can use any help they can get, but none of the players appear to be able to change the complexion of a team like Davis.
