As a New York Knicks enthusiast, Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery was a blur.
Right after months of wishing and praying and hoping for the No. 1 choose in this year’s draft, the Knicks’ time-lengthy tank work proved to be unsuccessful when the ping pong balls identified that the group would be selecting 3rd.
Irrespective of the Knicks getting a 14 p.c likelihood of selecting 1st in general, it was the Pelicans with their 6 p.c odds that came absent with the appropriate to choose Duke standout Zion Williamson.
When the draft buy was ultimately sorted out, I put in the upcoming hour or two just staring at the ceiling, hoping to convince myself that having Duke’s R.J. Barrett at No. 3 wasn’t so poor. The gradual development from despair to acceptance could best be summed up by that Alonzo Mourning GIF:
