If there is a lockout does the team with the #1 pick get one for this draft and the next one?

No.

2011 Draft still takes place.

No.

2011 Draft still takes place.

I know that am asking about if the order stays the same for the 2011 draft and 2012 draft or if they just cancel the 2012 draft

Try actually understanding the question.

I am not sure how it works in the NFL, but in other sports, if a draft is cancelled then the following year's draft would also still take place using the same order. Not certain whether someone can confirm specific to the NFL.

In the NFL, if no football is played this year, then the 2012 draft order is the same as the 2011 draft order. Trust me, I'm a Panthers fan.

Good question. I also don't know what's gonna be the draft order for 2012 class if there is a full season lockout. Does the same team gets #1 pick 2 years in a row? Or do they have the same teams in the lottery and then order them again? Anyone?

Why is everyone talking about NFL? It's about the NBA. Please state clearly if you know the exact answer. I also want to know.

I'm going to make a sort of off topic comment about the 1st pick. If your not a senior why would you come out with a possible lockout or strike. I think a bunch of Freshman - Juniors will stay in even if they might high in the lottery. Who knows how long a strike or lockout could be.

if the cavs get the 1st pick then after lockout it stays the same then they would be one lucky *** team

They shouldve had a lock out a couple years ago then

Chicago selects D Rose and then Blake Griffin

What would be really nice is if the 2012 draft would have equal chances among all teams...even nicer if the lakers got a top 5 pick. lol

If a team does get two first rounds picks, alot of teams are going to be pissed

2011 draft still goes on because the lockout is in july but for 2012 im not too sure. I doubt that it gets to the point though

How lucky can they be? LeBron just shat all over that franchise, its fans and the city of Cleveland.

Luck isn't the word best used to describe a team that just lost a once-in-a-generation type of player.

Yeah, I think teams would be annoyed, but what are the alternatives?

It's not fair for teams like LA, BOS, MIA, ORL, DAL, CHI to get a Lottery Pick in 2012.

Maybe the 2011 selection order of the teams outside of the lottery can remain the same while the 2011 lottery teams are thrown back into the machine and reselected for the 2012 lottery picks. That may be more fair. Lottery teams in 2011 should keep some sort of lottery pick for 2012. That isn't as bad to me.

Unless, the #1 pick goes to the Cavs. I don't mind if they get back-to-back first picks.

I would imagine they would do the same order but redo the lottery the following year.

Nobody wants a lockout.
Not the owners. Not the players.
But if there is one bright spot for the Panthers it is that they would indeed get the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft if there is no football in 2011, a high-ranking league source has confirmed to Carolina Growl.

The NHL lost an entire season in 2004-05. They held a lottery for the top pick with all teams having a chance to land the top pick with the teams with the worst record over the last three years having the greatest chance. I'd expect some kind of lottery.

Sidney Crosby was the top pick so everyone wanted to land him.

Larry Coon has adressed this a bunch of times. Essentially the answer is that it would be however the new CBA agrees it should be, and right now nobody (publicly) has any idea what that would be.
Another draft with the same order, another lottery with all teams included and equal weightings, another lottery with all teams included and non-equal weightings, are all possibilities, as are anything else you can come up with.

One thing that's for sure is that the NFL and NHL precedents have absolutely no effect on what they'll do. They're possibilities, just like anything else, but nobodies compelled to follow in those leagues' footsteps.
