It would be fitting if the year we finally get the #1 is the year there is nobody worth taking at #1. On the bright side nobody we can pick will be immediately good enough to take us out of the running for the #1 pick next year.

The Magic will get the Number 1 pick and will select Noel. Reason being the draft is clearly rigged.

In the event that teams finish with the same record, each tied team receives the average of the total number of combinations for the positions that they occupy. In 2007, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Portland Trail Blazers tied for the sixth worst record. The average of the 6th and 7th positions in the lottery was taken, resulting in each team getting 53 combinations (the average of 63 and 43). Should the average number not be an integer, a coin flip is then used to determine which team or teams receive the extra combination(s). The result of the coin flip is also used to determine who receives the earlier pick in the event that neither of the tied teams wins one of the first three picks via the lottery.

From the looks of it.

If we tie Orlando with the worst record, we will both have a 22.4% chance of winning the number one pick.

If we have the worst, it is a 25% chance.

If we have the 2nd worst, it is a 19.9% chance.
