CHOICE A: Your team has won the draft lottery and will have the No. 1 overall draft pick in a year when the prospect class is loaded with four or five potential future All-Stars

CHOICE B: Your team has two lottery picks – one of them your own selection and the other acquired in a prior deal – and they are slotted at No. 4 and 5

Cohen’s Analysis: If we are talking about 2014, in which many insiders believe there will be up to six or seven promising stars to build a team around, choice B seems more attractive. However, in some years like 1992 (Shaquille O’Neal), 1997 (Tim Duncan), 2003 (LeBron James) and 2012 (Anthony Davis), it would be more promising to be in the choice A category.
