    Nba.com says "televised on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, before Game 2 in Orlando." Surely 30 minutes of preview.

    The Rockets will know right away, if they are not the 14th pick, they will be in the top 3.....

    Not a long wait at all.

    In 2002 we had a 8.9 percent chance..... So....there's a chance.

    Kinda sucks there won't be much suspense for the Rockets since we're the 14th pick most likely. However, if that's NOT a Rockets logo at 14, let the fun begin!

    both times we got a spread 4 who can block shots. sounds like Donatas Motiejunas.

    And both times Carol Dawson was the GM. Morey hasn't drafted anything close to a spread 4 since coming to Houston. Just sayin'.

    Basically, chances are a team in the Rockets position will get a top 3 spot once ever 50 years and will get the top pick once ever 200 years.

    Ha, I forgot about this. Could a lottery have less drama than this one? A 98 percent chance that the Rockets draft at 14th.

    But if the Rockets bust the odds and sneak into the top three, CF will probably be down until tomorrow afternoon.

    I saw 7:30 during the preview to the WCF Gm1, so that is what time I am calling it for purposes of official draft lottery chat.

    The entire future of the Rockets could be changed by one bounce.

    Turner would guarantee a ring for this team barring injuries.

    I don't see any team picking Turner first. Wall is the most talented by far and has the highest ceiling.

    Even if Wall isn't a need at your position you take the best player available.

    I saw 7:00 for Lottery, 7:30 for the start of Celtics-Magic Game 2.

    Lottery Show starts at 7 according to my U-Verse guide.

    Darn it, Basketball Gods! Please, after all of our injuries and bad luck, please have mercy on us and lets us be in the top 3!

    We, as Rockets fans, need some hope! Please don't give the top 3 to some loser town like the Nets or Wizards!

    We actually worked or asses off, unlike some teams that tanked. Please reward us tonight!

    Please, pretty please! With a cherry on top! :(
