The Bulls were slotted ninth and had only a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery. They leapfrogged seven teams, including the Knicks, whose new coach, Mike D’Antoni, turned down the Bulls to come to New York.The Knicks can't even do well in the draft lottery.

In a draft that is considered deep, but with no sure things after Rose and Beasley, the Knicks will get a less great player. Slotted fifth, they slipped to sixth in the lottery.
I believe Jon Lester, cancer survivor™, came in third in the lottery.
