Philadelphia 76ers get the second overall pick in 2010 NBA draft

The Sixers didn't win the "John Wall Sweepstakes" tonight, but literally got the second best thing. With last year's first round pick, Jrue Holliday on hand for good luck, the Sixers lucked into the second pick of the draft in tonight's NBA lottery. The Sixers grabbing the second pick was a surprise, considering the number of ping pong balls in the hopper favored them to pick around 6 or 7.

Better get to know the name Evan Turner... In the meantime, Nets fans(is there such a thing) get to lament that the NBA doesn't always reward abject failure with the #1 overall pick like the NFL...
