2012 NBA Draft: Brandon Knight will represent Pistons at lottery

Like the Moose did for the Pistons last year, the Pistons' first round pick from the previous year will represent the team at the NBA Draft Lottery next week per the Detroit Free Press' Vince Ellis:

As Tom Ziller said last year, sending the previous year's top pick never works. The Pistons need to exploit the children like Dan Gilbert or send a guy dressed up as Robocop. If the extremely lucky lefty Greg Monroe couldn't bring home a pick better than where the odds already placed the Pistons, then Brandon Knight's probably not going to either. Here's a list of "lucky charms" I'd rather see represent the Pistons during the lottery:

  • Tom Gores
  • Tom Gores' personal assistant [wink, head tilt]
  • Batman
  • Calvin Johnson, because he survived Millen
  • The Spare Tires
  • Cee Lo Green
  • a family of Red Pandas
Who would you like to see represent the Pistons? What lucky charm should Knight carry with him since he's going no matter what we say?

The 2012 NBA Draft Lottery will be next Wednesday, May 30, and will be televised on ESPN at 8:00 p.m. ET, before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
