Lotto Time

The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight, which I've always found a completely ridiculous exercise- why in the world should the future of the league, essentially, rest on the bouncing of a bunch of ping-pong balls? Especially when the actual worst teams have a less than 20 percent chance of winning. Perhaps I'm just bitter, since the Timberwolves have never either won the lottery nor moved up in their history. They've got the the third-best chance this year, but I'm not optimistic about their chances, and even if they do get in the top three, there's also a chance Kevin McHale will make the wrong call.

Back in real basketball, I'm rooting, unapologetically, for Kevin Garnett and the Celtics. Maybe, if they win, Minnesota can throw him a parade, like Boston did for Ray Bourque.

UPDATE: Yep, third place. In a two-player draft. As usual.

Stuck at #3. The streak's still alive.
