Clippers win 2009 draft lottery, Kings to pick fourth

Think Blake Griffin will be better than former Clippers top-pick Michael Olowokandi?

Think Blake Griffin will be better than former Clippers #1 pick Michael Olowokandi?

Although Sacramento had the best statistical chance to win Tuesday’s NBA draft lottery, I just knew it wouldn’t happen.

I had a feeling luck (if that’s what you wanna call it) would be on the side of Oklahoma City, allowing the Thunder to select Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin.

Instead, the L.A. Clippers beat the odds and secured the top pick.

The disappointment continued for the Kings, who will pick fourth and likely select Hasheem Thabeet.

Memphis will pick second and probably select Ricky Rubio, while Oklahoma City will probably take Jordan Hill or Thabeet.
