That image is from this CSN Washington report.  Now you know how much of a chance the Wizards have to get each pick in the 2011 NBA Draft lottery tonight.  Onto the links.

General information

  • The lottery will begin at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.  We'll be opening a thread well before then. [SB Nation D.C.]
  • Here are the odds for each team to win the number one pick. [NBA.com]
  • The only team to win the lottery with the fourth-worst record was San Antonio back in 1987.  As noted here, it hasn't happened since the current weighted odds system began in 1994. [@MrMichaelLee]
  • I'm sure most of you have done this already, but here's the ESPN lottery simulator. [ESPN]

  • This would be a bad year to get unlucky. [Craig Stouffer]
  • Blog buddy Mark Haubs of The Painted Area thinks the Wizards winning the lottery again would be the best outcome for the NBA as a whole. [ESPN Five on Five]

  • An argument for why the No. 3 pick is better than No. 1 because it means the Wizards get Enes Kanter, or something. [Wizards Extreme]
