When the Ping-Pong balls stopped bouncing, the Los Angeles Clippers won the 2011 NBA draft lottery. Then, they subsequently lost it.
Having traded their first-round pick to Cleveland in the middle of the season as enticement to take on Baron Davis' contract, the Clippers pick ended up giving Cleveland two selections in the first four picks of this year's draft. In a draft class that some people are calling the weakest in the history of the lottery, the top two picks were hot commodities.
This mock draft will run through the first round, showcasing teams that will be overly pleased with their spot in the draft as well as teams that are in a tight spot.
