The Wizards Take the Number One Spot in the Draft

There's almost no chance they'll blow it and draft another Kwame Brown:

With his championship ring on her hand and her late husband’s dreams of another on her mind, Irene Pollin stood in shock as the Washington Wizards won the draft lottery.
Towering over her to the side, Mikhail Prokhorov watched the New Jersey Nets lose yet again.
The Wizards won the draft lottery Tuesday night, moving up from the No. 5 spot to earn the top pick in next month’s draft, when it will likely choose between Kentucky freshman John Wall and national player of the year Evan Turner of Ohio State.
The Wizards might want to think about trading down, and getting some proven talent. Drafting at number one is a crap shoot, and this is not a franchise that can afford crap shoots.
Speaking of Kwame Brown...

That's what four million dollars will buy in the NBA now? Forty-eight games and an average of less than 14 minutes a game?
