Wow. What luck. The Portland Trail Blazers had the odds of just 5.3% to win the first place in the NBA Draft 2007. This usually depends on how well a team has played during the last NBA season, and the Portland Trail Blazers were amongst the top teams of their division, having a record of 32 wins and 50 losses. Even a team like Memphis Grizzlies had a record of 22 wins and 60 losses gave them a 25% chance of winning first pick in the lottery, but somehow, they ended up receiving 4th place only. I am looking forward to see a much better team for the Philadelphia 76ers because during last season, Allen Iverson was traded to the Nuggets to join up with Carmelo Anthony.
