Hoops Links: Blazers, Knicks, Delfino, Hill, Paul

On this day in 1985, the Knicks won the first ever draft lottery, enabling them to select center Patrick Ewing out of Georgetown.  This not only gave birth to a new era of Knicks basketball, but to one of the biggest conspiracy theories in sports.  Some wondered if the NBA fixed the lottery in order to steer the top talent in the draft to the league's premier market.  Was the Knicks' envelope frozen prior to being placed in the drum?  Or was the envelope just bent slightly at the corner?  Earlier this year, Charles Barkley proved that lottery conspiracy theories are alive and well as he suggested that the Brooklyn Nets could be in line for the top pick in this year's draft.
