2012 NBA Draft Lottery Results: The New Orleans Hornets Win The Anthony Davis Sweepstakes

Kentucky's Anthony Davis was the best player in college basketball without a doubt and it's no wonder he's everybody's choice to be chosen first overall at the NBA Draft on June 28th. The Charlotte Bobcats had the best chance to get the top pick based on their horrific record this season, but rarely does the team with the most ping pong balls actually win the lottery.

This year was no different as the New Orleans Hornets walked away with the right to take Davis first overall. Here is the way the draft lottery shook out:

1. New Orleans Hornets

2. Charlotte Bobcats

3. Washington Wizards

4. Cleveland Cavaliers

5. Sacramento Kings

6. Portland Trailblazers (from the Brooklyn Nets)

7. Golden State Warriors

8. Toronto Raptors

9. Detroit Pistons

10. New Orleans Hornets

11. Portland Trailblazers

12. Milwaukee Bucks

13. Phoenix Suns

14. Houston Rockets
