The 2013 NBA Draft Lottery is set to take place on Tuesday night, and the Orlando Magic have the best odds to come away with the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft.
However, the team with the best odds heading into the lottery has never had much success getting that No. 1 pick. The team with the most ping pong balls has won the lottery just twice in the last 22 years. The last team to do so was the Magic in 2004, which led to the selection of Dwight Howard.
On the flip side, the Magic have also won the lottery with the lowest odds. In 1993, Orlando won the No. 1 pick despite having just a 1.52-percent chance. That pick became Chris Webber, who was then traded to the Golden State Warriors.
The Chicago Bulls infamously got lucky in 2008, when they won the No. 1 pick despite having just a 1.7-percent chance. The Bulls selected hometown sensation Derrick Rose over Michael Beasley, a decision in hindsight that was an absolute no-brainer.
New Orleans won the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery with a 13.7 percent chance at the No. 1 pick and selected Anthony Davis.
