If you believe Oswald was the only triggerman in Dallas in 1963, or you think it's only a myth that UFOs and aliens are being studied somewhere near Roswell, N.M., you also probably believe the NBA lottery has never been rigged.

Yeah, and the tooth fairy visits Seattle Supersonics fans every night.

If there was ever a time to keep your eyes on the lottery, it's this week.

With the Kings winning their high-stakes poker game against Seattle last week, capped by the team being sold to a group led by Vivek Ranadive, the conspiracy theorists will have a field day if outgoing NBA Commissioner David Stern announces on Tuesday that Sacramento has won the top pick in the June 27 draft.

Last year, the New Orleans Hornets won the top pick just before Tom Benson purchased the team.
