The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery was quick to subvert expectations, giving the Lakers a top-four pick, dropping the Knicks to No. 3, and landing the New Orleans Pelicans — in the middle of a long, drawn out Anthony Davis trade war — the right to select Zion Williamson next month.
Unfortunately for Philadelphia 76ers fans, the Kings’ pick stayed put at 14, which keeps it in Boston’s possession. At least it sparked this bad joke from the Sacramento Twitter page, which is worth a chuckle. Or at least the Sixers’ swift response was.
