You can call it the draft lottery if you want; I choose to call it the Anthony Davis Sweepstakes. The Draw for the Unibrow.

After some coins were tossed and some ties broken, we have the NBA lottery odds and draft order for the June 28 draft. (Enjoy the irony of the future of so many players and franchises taking place in Newark, a city the NBA has deserted.)
