Around the NBA/WNBA

  • The New Orleans Hornets won the NBA's draft lottery and the #1 overall pick in the 2012 draft. It is expected that the Hornets will use the pick to select Kentucky forward Anthony Davis. The pick was New Orleans' own pick, not the pick they received from Minnesota. That picked finished 10th overall.
  • David Stern spoke before the lottery and said the league needs to take a closer look at flopping and at all flagrant fouls. He also wants to end defensive basket interference. Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver also discussed reserving spots on the US Men's Basketball Team for those 23 years of age and under.
  • Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports talks about the league inviting lottery skepticism.
  • Brandon Becker of Rufus on Fire laments the Charlotte Bobcats finishing second in the NBA draft lottery and missing out on a potential franchise-changing player in Davis.
