The ping pong balls have had their say and although the draft order is set, the same can not be said about who each team plans on taking or if and picks will get traded. But if everything holds as it is, let's take a look at how the first ten picks should go.
Sterling, and wife Shelly, made out far better than any bandit could hope to in their wildest dreams with the announced sale of the team. Worse, the sale price sent the horrid message that bigotry can have its own rewards.
This happens to be the most stacked and more importantly deep draft in a decade, so there's a good chance some of these players can make a difference.
The summer of 2014 will have a lead story all its own, and there are already many candidates for top honors. So follows a suggested "top 19" list of the stories most likely to dominate the news (if not the beach reading) this summer.
Since 1990, the NBA has been using a weighted lottery system, which gives the worst team in the league the best chance to land the No. 1 pick, but also gives others outside chances of landing it.

When a young person can go to school confident and proud of who they are, without the stigma they may face from their peers or from within their own ideals of who they should be, then we can say, 'this is the year it all ends.'
Many believe that Donald Sterling does not have a leg to stand on. I don't share this view for two reasons.
In the NBA, a team needs at least two reliable shot-creators to win in the postseason -- players capable of manufacturing an open look for themselves or for a teammate at will. For LA, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are those primary playmakers.
Fifty years ago this summer, Congress adopted the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the first anti-discrimination law with any teeth since the end of Reconstruction. By many accounts, the Sterlings have repeatedly violated these American principles.
This is an opportunity for the NBA to do more than silence one racist owner. It's time to change the ownership paradigm.
