"TTP" now stands for "Trust the Proposal."

Prior to Tuesday night’s NBA draft lottery, the Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast and jeweler LL Pavorsky teamed up on a contest for Philadelphia 76ers fans: Get engaged at the RTRS lottery party and get a free ring worth $7,500.

The official announcement came in February:

We will pick a winner at random at [6 p.m.] at the Lottery Party, and send you a text. You have five minutes to text us back and meet with us. We will then set you up with the ring, and give you instructions for the proposal. If you do not respond within five minutes, or are not at the party, we will move on to the next.

About an hour before the Sixers' fate was determined by pingpong balls, two fans got engaged. Fans chanted "She said yes!"

Notice the sweet deal on Shirley Temples in the background.
