NBA Draft Lottery

Peter May:

Welcome to the 2004 NBA Draft Lottery. Or, as it's known in the inner circles, "An Evening With Elgin."

The draft lottery is tonight at 8 on ESPN, preceding game three of the eastern finals. It's a pretty pathetic, pointless affair, as May points out, even calling top prize Emeka Okafor "a destitute man's Alonzo Mourning." But at least it can't be any more dull than the game that comes after it. Since people seem to be into making guarantees, how's this for one: no one will score 100 points in a game in the series. Complain as I might, Tayshaun Prince's block the other night was sweet.
