Odds On Hitting the Jackpot Are Low

When you're down and out, like the Bulls, you tend to find yourself pinning too many of your hopes on the lottery. For the Bulls it's only a 1.7% chance of getting the #1 pick, a 2.4% chance of getting the #2 pick, and a high probability of walking away from the NBA Draft Lottery with the #9 pick. Cross your fingers and hope for Derrick Rose or Michael Beasley, but get yourself ready for Kosta Koufous or Danilo Gallinari.

If you want to entertain yourself between now and Tuesday night's NBA DRAFT Lottery, play with ESPN's NBA Lottery Mock Draft simulation.
