Time for my annual thread of disappointment and sadness as we all get ready to watch ESPN televise at 7:30PM tonight (Tuesday, May 15th) the lottery for determining the picks for the 2018 NBA draft.

C'mon Knicks fans, let's once again all hold hands in a circle tonight and pray for rare good lottery fortune.

As posted in other threads, our chances are slim tonight. We have only a 1.7 percent chance of the #1 overall pick and a 6.1 percent chance of a top 3 pick.

In all likelihood, we are staying at the #9 pick. Maybe the more important thing is to root against the teams currently seeded 10 through 14 to not get their own miracle and move up ahead of us and push us down to #10.
