In Tuesday’s NBA draft draw, perhaps no team can get more – and no more losses – than the Rockets.
Houston entered the lottery with the Pistons and Magic, and won the best odds (14%) for the first overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. If the Rockets end up at the top of the draft, they may choose Oklahoma State University star Kade Cunningham, which is a potential cornerstone of the team, with elite height, shooting and organizational skills.

However, if Houston’s draft pick is not among the top four, it will be transferred to Oklahoma City. (Thunder Receive multiple choice exchange options As part of the 2019 Chris Paul Russell Westbrook deal). Considering that the Rockets have ended the season where they had to trade James Harden and finish the league’s worst record with a total record of 17-55, this would be a disastrous result.

This is a weedy explanation of table tennis painting, Directly from the NBA:
Fourteen table tennis balls numbered 1 to 14 will be put into the lottery machine. When 4 balls are drawn from 14 balls, there are 1,001 possible combinations, regardless of their selection order. Before the draw, 1,000 of these 1,001 combinations will be allocated to the 14 teams participating in the draw. The lottery machine is manufactured by Smart Play, the leading state lottery machine manufacturer in the United States. Smart Play will also weigh, measure and certify table tennis balls before the draw.
The drawing process is as follows: Put all 14 balls into the lottery machine, mix for 20 seconds, and then take out the first ball. The remaining balls are mixed in the lottery machine for another 10 seconds, and then the second ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the third ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the fourth ball is drawn. The team assigned to this combination will get the first overall pick. Repeat the same process using the same table tennis ball and lottery machine for the second to fourth positions.
If the same team appears multiple times, the result will be discarded and another four-ball combination will be selected. In addition, if an unallocated combination is drawn, the result will be discarded and the ball will be drawn again. The length of the ball mixing is monitored by the timekeeper with his back to the machine, and a signal is sent to the machine operator after the appropriate time has passed.
