As we await the results of the 2017 NBA Lottery at 8:30 PM Eastern (airing on ESPN), let’s take a quick look at the important odds for the Knicks.
The Knicks have a 5.3% chance of landing the #1 overall pick.
Odds for No. 2 overall pick: 6.0 percent
Odds for No. 3 overall pick: 7.0 percent
Odds for No. 7 overall pick: 57.2 percent
Odds for No. 8 overall pick: 22.6 percent
Odds for No. 9 overall pick: 1.8 percent
Odds for No. 10 overall pick: Just a smidge over 0.
So 18.3% chance at landing in the top 3 and 79.8% chance of being either the #6 or the #7 seed.
Let’s hope that the 18.3% chance wins out.
Let’s go, ping pong balls!
