Kentucky’s Rajon Rondo drives against Mississippi’s Bam Doyne during a 2005 SEC Tournament game. Rondo’s time at Kentucky was a mixed bag. Although the point guard averaged 11 points per game and piloted the Wildcats to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2006 (his second and final season), it was the first of two straight seasons with double-digit losses, which resulted in Tubby Smith’s exit. SI’s Rob Dauster ranked this year’s Kentucky squad No. 1 in his preseason SEC rankings. (Wade Payne/Icon SMI)DAUSTER: 2012 SEC PrimerGALLERY: Rare Rajon Rondo Photos

The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight and one NBA franchise will be better next season with the likely addition of Kentucky forward Anthony Davis, the consensus No. 1 overall pick. Of course, many important decisions are made after the top pick. One of the most famous bad draft decisions was Detroit choosing to take Darko Milicic with the second pick of the 2003 draft instead of Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The Serbian forward never fit into the system of then-Pistons coach Larry Brown and was traded to Orlando after three seasons. Who will own the top pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Find out tonight.
