On Tuesday, May 16, the ping pong balls were put into place and were drawn at random to decide the 1-14 picks in this coming NBA draft on June 22. Boston, with the best odds to land the first overall pick, victoriously kept that number one spot, as well as making it to the Eastern Conference Finals in the same week where they will face LeBron James and the two-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers.
