The Detroit Pistons will have the number one overall pick in this year's NBA Draft! We break down what it means for the future of the franchise. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we react to what was last night's NBA Draft Lottery. The Detroit Pistons shocked the basketball world, getting the number one overall pick. Al breaks down what this means for the future of the franchise and why Cade Cunningham of Oklahom State should be the clear choice. Also, we discuss the drama of last night's NBA Western Conference Finals finish between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers. It was one of the greatest finishes in NBA Playoffs history. That, and more!
