The 2011 NBA Draft Lottery is the NBA's version of reality TV.

General managers and coaches can only cross their fingers as they watch their team's future hopes bounce around.

The lottery is the NBA's way of determining the top three selections in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have a 25 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick, with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors close behind.

The lottery kicks off at 8:25 p.m. ET in Secaucus, N.J., and I'll be with here updating you with some live coverage of the event.

Let's get it started.
