Laker Nation, Kyle Kuzma worked his magic to get the number 4 pick for our @Lakers
in the NBA draft! The Lakers are going to get a really good young player to help LeBron and the team next season.
Crazy part of the NBA lottery. LeBron James leaves Cleveland for the Lakers...and one year later, the Lakers get a higher pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
NO. 1 ➡️ NEW ORLEANS!
The Pelicans have won the NBA draft lottery.

Pelicans get the 1st overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft
Is Zion New Orleans-bound?
Top 4 picks in the 2019 NBA draft: 1. Pelicans 2. Grizzlies 3. Knicks 4. Lakers. New Orleans has opportunity to draft Zion Williamson.

Coach Alvin Gentry reacts to the @PelicansNBA
winning the 2019 #NBADraftLottery.
The great Dirk Nowitzki joined us today. The greatest Dallas Maverick & one of the best NBA players of all time. We’re glad he remains a Texan. @swish41

If the Lakers get a top 5 NBA Draft pick I will giveaway 100 NBA League Passes tonight.
This was Steph's 4th career playoff game with at least 8 3-pointers, tied with Ray Allen for the most in NBA postseason history.
The two least valuable teams in the NBA: New Orleans Pelicans & the Memphis Grizzlies. They will pick No. 1 & No. 2.
How excited is Alvin Gentry about getting the #1 pick in the NBA Draft?

Best fan base in the NBA win or lose. #MFFL
The NBA made up for the NFL and did right by New Orleans. #NBADraftLottery
THE MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES JUST GOT THE SECOND PICK IN THE NBA DRAFT THIS IS NOT A DRILL. SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENED TO US. I AM: NOT OK
Alvin Gentry reacting to winning the NBA draft lottery is everything 🤣
In the 2008-2009 NBA season, LeBron was able to lead this roster to a 66-16 record. This isn’t talked about enough tbh https://t.co/1QVzTsFme0
The entire difference between Golden State and Houston over their 6-game series was 11 points -- that's half of what the Blazers lost by in Game 1 tonight alone.
But sure, let's make fun of the Rockets and analytics. That'll never work! https://t.co/B8XrnTQj5p
I love New Orleans but the #Pelicans getting the number one overall pick seems like such a disaster for the NBA. Zion being put in the exact same situation Anthony Davis is publicly asking to get out of. Brutal.

Remembering Larry Bird's final game in the NBA.
A bitter farewell from Larry Legend.
Bird was 35 and beset by back problems that limited him to 45 games (the second-fewest of his career) but still an All-Star for the 12th time in 13 seasons.

This line from @billoram
about the Lakers getting lucky in the NBA Draft Lottery is so good:
One of my best friends is a huge @PelicansNBA
fan and one of the biggest NBA fans I know. Here is his reaction to winning the #NBADraftLottery and being able to root for Zion over the next few years 😃 🏀 #Pelicans @ZionW32
Im a big Dame Lillard fan. Even the way he was professional and verbose with his answers to the media postgame, when he had a rough game in a loss (unlike other certain NBA guards)... He's just a lot of fun to watch. https://t.co/lHxDXeFHLQ
The Wall Street Journal @WSJ
The New Orleans Pelicans had a 6% shot at the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. And then they got lucky. It might have changed the entire league if they’re able to keep Anthony Davis. https://t.co/TOxdnZG8r8
Rob Pelinka says Lakers will evaluate players for No. 4 pick, but also see how the league values it in the trade market. https://t.co/wlBc5g5ini
NBA fans and media crying about the Lakers getting the 4th pick???
With the 9th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft the Washington Wizards select:
He does. He gets to chose to work for the NBA. He could chose to work for the Euro league, ESPN, JPMorgan, Macys or any number of other enployers. This particular employer has rules that everyone follows.
I haven't watched the game yet -- was writing a lottery thing that should be up in a bit -- but based on the tweets, I'm guessing the answer to my first big WCF question was, "No. Very much not." https://t.co/P3IWkZSPJH
The Knicks' Zion dreams were broken in the basement of the Hilton Chicago. Inside the room where the Knicks' numbers didn't come up and disappointment sat with Allan Houston until the rest of the world knew. Now, it's Ja or RJ, and the questions they raise https://t.co/wZ0nbewzkk
I wrote about the lottery, and the immense league-wide ramifications. Thoughts on the Pelicans getting lucky even beyond Zion, NYK, LAL, MEM/BOS, DAL and ATL, the end of the Sacramento-Philly-Boston pick swap, and the NBA getting what it wanted: https://t.co/Ei67vIi7Gn
Night Cap Poll Question with @OppositePicks
Biggest loser in the #NBA Draft Lottery?
#NBA is a joke. Lottery is a crazy idea. Imagine rewarding teams who couldn’t make the playoffs with ELITE top 5 NBA players (Pelicans, Lakers) and punishing teams who are actually just really bad because they don’t want teams to tank. even tho teams still tank.
Why am I only seeing this Donovan Mitchell barber shop NBA League pass ad now when it was supposedly made in October 2018 having had to watch the Joel Embiid fitted suit one all along over and over on ESPN.

•We go OFF on an entertaining #Lakers rant 😅
•Coaching changes, Klay Thompson’s future, news & more🔥
How does the 1st and 2nd pick in the draft both belong to teams who doubled the amount of wins then the team who received the 3rd pick... that just doesn’t make sense NBA
It would help if all those Saints fans bothered to go to an NBA game. Worst fanbase in the entire league.
12 years later the suns still getting screwed by the NBA
- thanks for fucking @Suns
fans with your new draft rules. I’m done with the #NBA until Sarcee sells or the league takes the franchise.
the NFL and NBA need to switch systems. the #1 pick in the NFL isn’t having nearly the impact as the #1 pick in the NBA
The bulls are gonna make me sad again. The nba is simply rigged, id say.
Really NBA The Pelicans got the 1st pick.
Lol Zion is going to waste a lot of years playing for the Pels. I'd be asking for a trade just before he becomes a restricted Free Agent or sign a 2 year max deal after that and he can then leave for anything better. I think he wanted to be in the East not on the Cavs though.
Wonder if anyone has ever pulled an elway or manning and forced a trade in the NBA...Zion to NY or LA? Did pippen do that?
False! Tanking has kept the teams from being competitive because they're not even trying to win! The new rules are awesome for the NBA no more tanking!
This is a crazy turn of events. Teams wanted the 1st pick so they could either pick @ZionW32
or trade that right to the @PelicansNBA
and thus build a superteam including Pelicans' @AntDavis23
#NBAPlaoyffs #nbadraft2019 #NBADraftLottery
I’ve always said I like Cam Reddish and that he’s got the most potential out of the 3 Duke players. Just because I said he wasn’t NBA ready doesn’t mean I doubted him, the dude ain’t NBA ready...he’s an attractive pick for his potential and his physical athleticism
Can I do a Paul Pierce and say the series is over already and congratulate the @warriors
4 being in another finals #NBAPlaoyffs #NBA
