2010 NBA Draft Lottery

19.9%…

And so, David Kahn’s big night has arrived. Aside from the actual day of the draft, this is, perhaps, the most important date of the off-season for Wolves fans to keep in mind. Tonight, depending on how the ping-pong balls fall, shall dawn either the turn-around Wolves fans have been desiring for years or, yet again, another disappointing season bloated with humiliation and defeat.

19.9%…

I know what you’re thinking; Yes, we have to rely on a ping-ping ball as means of our immediate future. But don’t be too discouraged. The team with the worst record in the league has only won the lottery two times since 1994 and the second worst record, the Wolves this year, have won it three times, including last season. At least we have that history going for us, despite being one of few teams in the league to never win have won the lottery.

19.9%…

But no matter how lucky or un-lucky the Wolves are tonight, Wolves fans should have some faith in Kahn. Even without a top two pick, the Wolves should still have the assets handy to sculpt out a good-looking crop of young guns come draft night. After all, they do have three guaranteed first-round picks. In addition to our plethora of draft choices, we have the space in the salary cap and a trigger-happy GM when it comes to trades to acquire some veteran talent and leadership for next season and beyond. I firmly believe that this team cannot be built upon youth alone, and so Kahn must do his part to convince some veterans to come in and help. And given the chance, Kahn will do just that while finding a harmonious balance between our young guns and soon-to-be veterans thus creating a soon-to-be championship squad.

So, have some faith. 19.9%… And everything could change in an instant.
