Taking bets on who will win this year's Draft

Orlando has some incredible lottery luck. Second to only the previously perpetually-abysmal Clippers (5), the Magic (3) have won the most Drafts in NBA history. They won the Lottery in 1992, 1993, and 2004, netting Shaq, Chris Webber (traded for Penny Hardaway), and that one other guy.

You could even argue Orlando won the Draft last year (2013) by selecting their top target in Victor Oladipo (Thank you Cleveland, for being you). Besides being the only team to win consecutive Drafts (1992-93), the Magic also beat the largest odds in the '93 Draft with only an overall 1.5% chance of winning it. This year Orlando owns 150 out of a total 1,000 ping pong ball combinations, giving them the 3rd best chance of picking one of this Draft's celebrated "Game Changers".

If there was ever a year to look forward to winning a Draft, most could comfortably say that this year may be the one, with some of the best talent and depth seen in some time. There are many that speculate that the Draft is in fact, fixed, but to those people I laugh, and say, why would anyone willingly let the Clippers win anything, much less multiple times?

So what say you, sports fan? Who do you have a hunch is going to take home the best pick to their city come May 20th @ the Draft Lottery?
