Lotto Luck

As you may have noticed, I haven't been paying a whole lot of attention to the NBA lately, as after the last season the league just about lost me. However, I did watch last night's excellent Game 7 between San Antonio and Dallas, which was a classic, even if it was marred by way too many timeouts.

Then, tonight, I tuned in for the NBA Draft Lottery, which Toronto won. My Wolves did not move up but did end up with the sixth pick. This isn't a particularly strong or deep draft, so the pick isn't worth as much as it would be in most years, although it's also not particularly certain that this year the 6th pick will be much worse than the 1st.

Let's just hope the Wolves do better with this 6th pick than they did in 1990 with Felton Spencer. Or all those years when they had to forfeit their pick over the Joe Smith contract.
