Bobcats grab second pick in NBA draft behind Hornets
CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Luck did not fall on the Charlotte Bobcats Wednesday night the way Michael Jordan had hoped.
Instead of the first overall draft pick, Charlotte has the second pick in the draft, which means the team will likely be forced to choose someone other than Kentucky standout Anthony Davis. Davis is considered to be by many the player who will be selected first in the draft.
To be honest, thought, the odds were against the Bobcats winning the NBA lottery. The team with the worst record in the league hasn't won the NBA lottery since 2004. The last team to do it was the Orlando Magic, who used that No. 1 pick to select Dwight Howard.
That's too bad for Jordan because he could have certainly use it to ignite his struggling franchise.
The Bobcats finished with the worst winning percentage in league history (.106) after going 7-59 in the labor-shortened regular season.
