NBA Draft Lottery live thread

Yeah, the Hornets missed the playoffs. On the bright side, they have an opportunity to get a great pick tonight. Come chat with other Hornets fans about the NBA Draft Lottery!

NBA: NBA Draft Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft Lottery starts at 8 p.m. tonight and the Charlotte Hornets have sent Rich Cho to represent them. The Hornets are projected to pick 11th, meaning they don’t have much of a chance to move up. But they could. The definitely could.

The Hornets haven’t had much luck in recent years as far as the Draft Lottery goes. They’re perhaps best remembered for losing out on the first overall pick back in 2012, when they ended up with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist — a decent get, in fairness — instead of Anthony Davis.

Had the balls bounced in their favor, we’d be in a completely different place right now.

But that’s life. You do everything you can to set yourself up for success and then leave the rest to chance.

This year’s draft is relatively deep, however, so the Hornets should get a good player even if they don’t move up.
