NEWARK, NJ - JUNE 23: NBA Commissioner David Stern speaks at the podium during the 2011 NBA Draft at the Prudential Center on June 23, 2011 in Newark, New Jersey.

The 2012 NBA Draft Lottery consists of 14 teams hoping for the right to select a teenage member of the national champion Kentucky Wildcats. One-and-done phenom Anthony Davis is the presumptive No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and will certainly be on the minds of fans for all the franchises with a chance at him. Davis' teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is also among the projected top picks along with former Kansas standout Thomas Robinson and UConn center Andre Drummond.

After a historically poor season, the Charlotte Bobcats enter the 2012 Draft with the highest odds of landing the No. 1 overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft. According to NBA.com, the Bobcats have a 25% chance of securing the top pick. The Wizards, Cavaliers, Hornets and Kings round out the quartet of teams likeliest to call out Davis' name at the upcoming draft.

The remaining teams eligible to hit the jackpot on Wednesday night include the Nets, Warriors, Raptors, Pistons, Timberwolves (although pick goes to Hornets), Trail Blazers, Bucks, Suns and Rockets.

@ StevePopper : Minutes away from NBA draft lottery results - and Nets fate. If NBA wants them to be good in Brooklyn they are 1, 2 or 3.

@ JohnnyCables : NBA Lottery -Bernie Kosar? Why would you wanna bring the bad luck of the Browns into this?

Share this:

Is there any team in the lottery that could win the top pick but eschew Anthony Davis? Sure doesn't seem like it. Perhaps there various way to go after the top pick, with Kidd-Gilchrist, Robinson and Drummond all being viable options.

The Cleveland contingent -- which includes Bernie Kosar -- is sporting bow ties tonight. Are they dressed for success? Or is the bow tie merely the sartorial equivalent of comic sans font?
