NBA Draft Lottery 2011: Order, Odds, Predictions and Updates on the Prospects

Every year, be it the NFL or NBA draft, we are overwhelmed with a list of names and descriptions that will suddenly make our favorite team 10 or 20 games better.

If you have spent time with any draft previews, mine included, you have seen things like, "he has great length, but badly needs to put on weight" or "great outside shooter, but undersized" so many times that you really don't know the difference between Donatas Motiejunas of Lithuania and Andrew Goudelock of Charleston.

Don't worry, you are definitely not alone.

This draft preview is intended to clear up the mystery behind the players in this year's draft. Will they be effective pros? What current pro athlete do they resemble? How many years will it take before they become starter ready?

At the end of this, I hope these names become much more tangible and you have a reason to hope your team drafts them.
