The Cavs won their coin flip over the Hornets, so the Cavs have the 3rd seed in the draft standings while the Hornets have the 4th.



The Warriors were tied for 7/8 seed with the Raptors and ended up winning the coin flip. This was huge for them because the pick they owe Utah this year is top 7 protected. Since they're now in the 7th seed, they have a 75% chance of keeping that pick. If they had landed the 8th, they would have only had a 10% chance of getting into the top 3 and keeping it.

Reading the tweets on coin flips is hilarious.

Apparently two Toronto reporters said they won their flip which is big because losing it means it goes to Utah, but then they retracted that.

Similar thing with the Cleveland reporters.

Actually most of the tweets are now reporting the Warriors won the coin toss to stay #7. As long as, as no one passes them in the lottery, they keep it.

Havent heard yet about Knicks, Utah, Dallas

As Stevie said, he's Dan Gilbert's son. Apparently, he has some sort of disease/disorder that he lives with but has a very positive attitude about it.

Nick was the Cavs representative at the 2011 NBA Draft Lottery. When the ESPN reporter asked him some fluff question about why he was the team's representative, he responded something to the effect of "Hey, what's not to like?!", which was really funny and got a huge reaction from everyone (hence, the hashtag #WNTL).

Apparently, Nick was good luck. The Cavs--with the league's worst record--won the lottery . . . with the CLIPPERS' pick (in the #8 lottery slot), which only had a 6.3% chance of hitting. The Cavs still also got the #4 pick with their own pick.

I'm guessing Nick will be representing the Cavs in next month's lottery and probably again in 2013.

Seems like a good kid.

The Knicks pick that will go to the Rockets will be the 16th pick of the first round, the earliest of the 3 positions it could have been.

The Rockets need to ask who the Knicks sent to represent them at the coin toss/flip/random drawing and get them go to the Lottery as the Rockets Representative.

I'm confused. Since when does the NBA do coin flips?
