The biggest prize in the NBA this season other than winning the title, of course. F course. A chance to pick Zion Williamson and the New Orleans pelicans got him. Paula Faris is here with the reaction and there was a lot of reaction. A lot of reaction. I know you were probably doing the happy dance. I got family in New Orleans. I know you do. Love the city of New Orleans. 6%, everybody. New Orleans had just a 6% chance of getting the number one pick in the draft lottery and now they have the opportunity to draft the most coveted player since Lebron James. Overnight, jubilation down in the big easy. In a shocking upset, the new Orleans pelicans grabbing the top spot in this year's NBA draft lottery. It's just another positive event for us in what's going to be, we hope, several we stack together. Reporter: Their prize -- Look out. Reporter: -- Is potential number one pick Zion Williamson. Whatever that team needs me to do, I'm going to be able to do it. Reporter: The news sending shock waves around the NBA. The New Orleans pelicans head coach couldn't contain his emotions. Even the pelicans ticket office partying like it's mardi gras. The 18-year-old phenom known for his spectacular Dunks and showstopping athleticism is now likely heading south. A city that he'd never been to. I've never been. Reporter: And while it is the thrill of victory for some -- The Memphis grizzlies. Reporter: -- It is agony for others. The New York Knicks. Reporter: New York Knicks fans were hoping Zion would be headed their way prompting this headline from "The New York daily news." The meltdown all across the city, a symbol of New York's recent success or lack thereof, the team finishing a disappointing 17-65 last season. Ooh. All of 17 games. That was a tough season. Ray lot can happen between now and the NBA draft which is June 20th but this pick could change the entire landscape. My reaction was like, no! I wanted the Knicks to get him. He hasn't even been to new Orleans yet. He's going to love it. He's going to love it. The curry brothers last night. How about that. Big brother Steph versus little brother Seth. The first time in the NBA that brothers have taken on one another in the conference finals. Mom and dad were clearly torn about this game, though. They had to flip a coin to figure out which son they were going to cheer for. One wearing Portland, one wearing a golden state Jersey. It's weird to play against his brother. Every time they play -- this is the first they played in the playoffs. Especially on this stage he knows they will have fun no matter how it turns out. Mom and dad will be proud no matter how it turns out. Game one handily. Nine three-pointers in the game. You play your brother. You want to whip his butt. I hope my brother wins -- no, you want to whip your brother's brother. Steph says it will be great as long as I win. S along the big brother wins. A lot of other stories
