The 2012 NBA Draft Lottery is set for Wednesday. Every one of the struggling franchises participating in Wednesday's lottery desperately needs the No. 1 pick. Some more than others. 

Following their historically bad season, the Charlotte Bobcats have the best odds to win the No. 1 pick. The Bobcats have 250 combinations in the lottery, giving them a 25 percent chance of receiving the No. 1 pick.
