Teams are hoping to be as lucky as Portland was in 2007. May their spirits be crushed.

A good way to realize how lame it is to be excited over the draft lottery is to explain it to your lady friend.

ME: I can't go. I have to be home to watch the draft lottery.

LF: What is that?

ME: Where they announce the order of the draft.

LF: Oh. So they pick the players?

ME: No, that's next month. This is where they announce the order that the teams will pick.

LF: So all the teams are waiting to see what order they get to pick in?

ME: Well, the order is mostly set. This is just to see what teams get the earliest picks.

LF: So you need to see when the Blazers will pick?

ME: No, that's already set.

Aaaaand scene. I'm still excited. No matter lameness. No matter that Portland isn't in the lottery. I'll be hanging with the lovable losers LIVE over at TWolves Blog . Bring your best joke for when the Timberwolves end up with the number five pick.
