Todd Gurley Isn't Happy With The Knicks' Result In Tonight's NBA Draft Lottery

The NBA held its annual lottery tonight to determine the top 14 selections in next month's draft. The New York Knicks suffered through a 17-65 regular season, the worst mark in franchise history, and entered the lottery with the second-highest odds of landing the No. 1 overall pick.

Unfortunately, the Knicks stood the best chance of receiving the No.4 pick, and that's exactly what they got. It's not a bad spot to be in, as this year's draft is certainly talent-laden. But it likely prevents them from snagging one of the draft's coveted big men, Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor, and highly-rated point guard D'Angelo Russell may also be off the board by the time the Knicks take their turn. 

Former Georgia star and current St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley was a top-10 pick in April's NFL Draft, and it seems like Gurley is also a Knicks fan. Like many other orange-and-blue supporters, he wasn't very happy with how the lottery played itself out.

Look on the bright side Todd. We're sure Knicks president Phil Jackson has something up his sleeve. And if he doesn't, owner James Dolan probably does. Wait, that's probably not a good thing. Oh well.
