The 2012 draft lottery will be held on May 30th at 8 PM ET. Here is a look at the lottery teams and their odds of winning.
Last season, the San Antonio Spurs were upset in the first round of the playoffs by the Memphis Grizzlies. With that disappointing loss, people began questioning if the Spurs were too old and if a core of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker was capable of taking the Spurs to a title anymore.

Paired with young point guard Rajon Rondo, they went on to win a championship and five straight division titles.

Now, the Celtics trio is battling age and injury while taking a back seat to Rondo.
