Poll: Sacramento Kings Will Win Pick ___ In 2012 NBA Draft Lotto


We’re a day away from the 2012 NBA Draft Lotto and after years of anticipation and wishful thinking,  King fans have given up on the process, continually heartbroken by the Kings string of insanely bad luck. Since 2007, the Kings have fallen from their projected slot four times and their draft history rivals as one of the worst in any professional sport, from busts like Nervous Pervis to players like Billy Owens, doing their best Kobe Bryant imitation, refusing to play for the Sacramento franchise – this not even taking into account the tragedies of Bobby Hurley and Ricky Berry.

Needless to say, the NBA draft and draft lotto haven’t been kind to the purple and black. Fans have gotten their hopes up year after year, bad season after bad season, knowing the ball would eventually bounce Sacramento’s way – but it hasn’t. With a collection of down fans and poor ownership, the wind has been taken out of the draft sails, but is 2012 the year of unexpected glory for the Kings franchise? Or will it be another punch to the gut of a franchise already down to a knee?

Here are the Kings’ draft odds – where do you think they’ll place tomorrow evening?

1st pick – 7.6%

2nd pick – 8.6%

3rd pick – 9.5%

4rth pick – N/A

5th pick – 26.1%

6th pick – 38.6%

7th pick – 9.3%

8th pick – 0.3%
