NBA Draft Lottery 2012: Time, TV Schedule And More For This Year's Lottery

When the ping pong balls stop jumping around, Anthony Davis will know what the future holds for him.

It will most likely be the greatest player (and the worst owner?) of all-time if the percentages hold true. He'd be headed to Michael Jordan and the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night in the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery.

Of course, the percentages are far from a sure fire bet. If you remember, the Chicago Bulls had less than a one percent chance to land Derrick Rose out of Memphis, but that's the way it worked out.

Unlike most years, the draft is chock full of real talent through the first ten selections or so, but the big prize is Davis, the freshman sensation from the University of Kentucky.

It's always fun to watch the team executives who are forced to sit there after abject failure the prior year, desperate to keep their jobs while wishing for that oasis that is the number one selection.

The lottery is always great theater, unless you're the unfortunate soul or fan base who should take the top pick but ends up with the fifth selection.

Here is a full list of the percentages each team has for the first overall selection:

Charlotte Bobcats: 25.0%

Washington Wizards:19.9%

Cleveland Cavaliers: 13.8%

New Orleans Hornets: 13.7%

Sacramento Kings: 7.6%

Brooklyn Nets: 7.5%

Golden State Warriors: 3.6%

Toronto Raptors: 3.5%

Detroit Pistons: 1.7%

Minnesota Timberwolves: 1.1%

Portland Trail Blazers: 0.8%

Milwaukee Bucks: 0.7%

Phoenix Suns: 0.6%

Houston Rockets: 0.5%

TV: ESPN

Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
