The 2011 NBA Draft Lottery is coming up and in order for teams to best evaluate who to choose this year in the draft, they must first look at past picks.

Lottery picks, especially high ones, can change a franchise.  While the second half of the first round and the second round are filled with good players, they are far more risky.  

Non-lottery picks often take longer to develop than lottery picks.  They are not given the same opportunities immediately in their career.  Players in the 2010 draft class have not yet had the opportunity to stand out, and will not be counted in this slideshow.
