    Phoenix Suns win NBA Draft Lottery, will pick No. 1 in 2018 NBA Draft

    The franchise deserved to be blasted over the years, but the team finally got it right here as this win is huge for this franchise.

    The Coyotes now look even more dumb here by not doing what the Suns did to win the 1OV.

    is it mean to say i don't care? actually kinda makes me more pissed that we didn't and they did. I'm not a basketball fan. Good for any of you Suns fans though, I wish i knew what it felt like!

    I’m a hater. Screw the Suns. And DBacks. Especially the Cardinals, though. I don’t like any other sports. Not at all.

    football is my next favorite, so I'm a Cards fan. Coyotes by a mile though. Although I'm a pretty big racing and fighting fan as well.

    I have not followed the Suns seriously since 2009, but I'm happy to see them (or any Arizona team for that matter) finally win a lottery draw. Hopefully whomever they pick is a franchise keeper.

    Are you guys sure there isn't a second phase to this where the Suns have to go up against the Milwaukee Bucks in a coin flip.

    Alcindor just a coin flip away from being a Sun.

    Stewart-Haas figured something out in the off-season, and moreover they performed addition by subtraction by letting Danica go.

    Also, the Indy 500 is in two weeks and I could not be more excited.

    (On topic - of course the Suns get 1OA. That awful franchise with the terrible owner and sad sack GM getting the lottery luck out of sheer imbecility is perfect for this stupid market.)

    Keep in mind the Suns lost out on the pick that would be Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I hate to do those what might have been scenarios (especially since I love the "Little Texas" song of the same name). But if Kareem was a Sun, things could have been a lot different.

    Lew Alcindor or Neal Walk.....the most painful of coin tosses.

    Should have called tails.........SHOULD HAVE CALLED TAILS!

    After reading up more on Doncic, I feel like he's a better choice than Ayton.

    Ayton probably makes a better stretch 4.

    Props to Sarver if the scouts and coaches want Doncic and he lets it happen. Not easy for a man from Tucson that went to UA.

    Looks like the Suns don't have a choice yet. Let who they pick help turn the franchise around and make Phoenix a viable place again for free agents.

    Will they trade down to get him? Will he come? F wasting a 1st round on a guy who may never come over. Take the sure thing. The criticism with Ayton's game should be fixable, as he hasn't been playing BB all that long...7 years?

    Why? This is the problem with the Suns. The owner should stay out of it, he hasn’t learned that lesson yet.

    Probably not.... His new head coach also knows Doncic and has coached him in international play.
