Ever since the New Orleans Hornets lept past the Bobcats and Wizards to secure the #1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, conspiracy theorists have been out in full force, wondering just how much of a coincidence that the league’s only NBA run franchise was able to secure the top pick?
After some pre Lottery pics of Davis surfaced already wearing a Hornets hat days prior to the actual Draft Lottery, many now wonder if the Lottery was rigged.
Whether it was legit or not, the New Orleans Hornets have now earned the right to draft NCAA POY Anthony Davis, the unanimous top talent in the 2012 Draft. Even though the official draft isn’t until June 28th, Davis must be taking a liking to the Nawlins culture, as he has already made his first appearance in a Hornets uniform on a national magazine cover.
Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan turns out to be the big loser as even after his Bobcats set an NBA mark for futility, his floundering franchise missed out on snagging Davis and the #1 pick. The #2 pick should be an excellent fallback option but rumor has it that Jordan is once again not showing great basketball GM insticts be announcing that he isn’t sold on Kentucky freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the franchise cornerstone going forward, instead focusing on Thomas Robinson.
In this awesome parody video, MJ enters David Stern’s office to confront his boss on how and why the Draft Lottery was rigged. After Jordan uses brute force to get some sort of revenge, Stern then outsmarts Jordan by allowing the Bobcats some retribution by promising MJ that he could draft Austin Rivers at #2 in his place. Remember, this is the same guy who drafted Kwame Brown #1 a few years back…….
