Default Re: NBA Draft Lottery!

The lottery can change the course of a franchise. In 1992, the big prize was Shaquille O'Neal, and the Magic walked away with the Diesel even though the Timberwolves had the best chance of winning. How many championships would the Wolves have won with Shaq anchoring the paint?
Probably the same number as the Magic did with him - zero, considering Shaq wound up in L.A. (and probably would have wound up there anyway).
