The Lakers had the sixth-worst record in this NBA this season--and the worst showing since the team moved to Los Angeles from Minneapolis in 1961. The season's saving grace was supposed to be a high draft pick.

Before yesterday's NBA lottery, most expected the Lakers to at least lock in a sixth pick. But the team was dealt another bad hand.

So what can the Lakers do with a seventh pick? What should the Lakers do? The NBA draft takes place on June 26.

It's déjà vu for the Los Angeles Kings and the Chicago Blackhawks, who face off again in this year's NHL Western Conference Finals. The Blackhawks took game 1 in Chicago, and the Kings are hoping to even the series tonight at the United Center to avoid falling into a 2-0 hole.
