The current lottery system has been in place since the 1994 draft. Since that time the #1 seed won the #1 spot only twice (11.1%), the #2 spot 7 times (38.9%), and the #3 spot 6 times (33.3%). The #2 seed won the #1 spot 3 times (16.7%), the #2 spot 1 time (5.6%), and the #3 spot 3 times (16.7%). THe #3 seed won the #1 spot 4 times (22.2%), the #2 spot 1 time (5.6%), and the #3 spot twice (11.1%). The #3 and #5 seeds won the first spot more than any other seed. The #6 seed (which is the Blazers's first pick) won the first spot twice (11.1%) as well as the second spot twice. The 11th seed never made it into the top 3 although the #14 seed did make the #3 spot back in 1999. Although the #5 seed won the #1 spot 4 times, the #4 seed never got it even once. With that said, although the #1 seed has a 25% chance of winning the #1 spot, I am convinced they will land second or third. I think the #1 spot will go to either the 2nd, 3rd, or 5th seeded team (washington, Cleveland, or Sacramento). I read somewhere that the previous years lottery winner cant win the second year in a row. I might be mistaken though but if that is the case then that could raise Charlotte's chances abit more. This info stood out to me. With all confidence I say we will get the #6 and #11 spots. Feel free to share your thoughts below.
