The 2012 NBA Draft Lottery is tonight at 8:00 p.m.on ESPN prior to Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. This is one of those years when the top prize, dynamic big man Anthony Davis out of Kentucky, is far and away the one consensus, franchise-changing player every team covets.
Fortunately, the Indiana Pacers played themselves well out of the lottery this year so the intrigue lies in where the top pick lands. Which team do you think deserves to land Davis? Which team would you like to see him go to?
SB Nation's Tom Ziller compiled the thoughts of NBA bloggers with teams in the lottery as they made their case as deserving the top pick. As you'll see, it is hard to argue the sound reasoning supplied by Charlotte Bobcats' blogger Ben Swanson at Rufus On Fire.
Personally, I'd prefer to see Davis go to the Western Conference for purely practical reasons. That would keep Davis from improving an Eastern Conference foe and also force the Pacers to only play him twice per year.
Check out all of the pleas for Davis and vote on which team you think deserves the top pick.
