Draft Lottery Tonight – C’s with 10.3% Chance

Tonight is the night that could change the Boston Celtics for multiple decades.  After 6 straight years in the playoffs with Pierce and KG, that sounds depressing, but it’s true.  This is the night.  We’ll have a ton of time to talk about the specific draft picks up until late June, but tonight, it’s just about the odds themselves.

As I said, the C’s have a 10.3% chance at the top pick, 11.1% at the 2nd, 12% at the 3rd, 23.8% at the 5th, 34.2% at 6th, 8.2% at 7th, and just .4% at 8th.  The good news is that the draft seems to fall off after about the top 6 from what I’ve read, and the C’s have less than a 1 in 10 chance of getting lower than that.  The bad news is that they only have a roughly 1/3 chance at a top 3 pick.

Well, I guess that’s all the analysis I can really do.  There’s not much more to say, but that doesn’t mean I’m not incredibly jacked up for an athletic event that isn’t actually an athletic event.  Number 1 pick, meet the Boston Celtics.
