The Washington Wizards hope to finally put the Kwame Brown fiasco behind them after winning last night's NBA draft lottery -- also known as the John Wall lottery.
The Wizards, who moved up from the fifth spot thanks to the bouncing ping pong balls, were represented by Irene Pollin.
"This is very, very special. I have been in this my entire adult life and to be here, representing my husband, this is very special to me tonight," said Pollin, wearing the 1978 Bullets championship ring of her late husband, Abe. "I think it's the culmination of my husband's dream because he wanted another ring and maybe this will get us another ring."
Pollin was joined by Ted Leonsis, who will take over ownership this summer of the Wizards from the Pollin family.
The Philadelphia 76ers jumped up from the sixth spot to grab the No. 2 pick, and the New Jersey Nets, owners of this season's worst record, fell to third.
The NBA draft is June 24 in New York.
