Clippers Win NBA Draft Lottery
The Clippers won the #1 overall pick for the 3rd time in team history. Although they were tied with the Wizards for the 2nd worst record in the NBA, the Clippers lost the coin toss for the second straight year (last year to the Knicks). The 2009 draft is considered relatively weak, with Blake Griffin as the undisputed top pick. The Clippers, when injury free, are already crowded in the frontcourt (Randolph, Skinner, Camby, and Kaman) so expect the Clippers to trade one or more of those players. Clipper fans have had little to celebrate this year; this should all but make up for the lackluster injury-plagued 08-09 season.
