From the Bird Whisperer:
Timberwolves assistant GM Fred Hoiberg will represent the team at the NBA draft lottery on May 20 in Secaucus, N.J. The Wolves have a 13.8 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick and a 14.2 percent chance of getting No. 2. They currently are in the No. 3 spot. The lowest spot the Wolves could fall to is No. 6.
Hoiberg represented the Wolves in the 2004 lottery, when they had the No. 14 spot and a .5 percent chance of moving up. They didn't budge.
Hoiberg didn't take any good-luck charms to that lottery but says he will this time. He won't reveal what he's taking, however.
Let me get this straight: the Wovles are going to send a guy who not only didn't bring them luck the first time around, but also had his career ended prematurely (in very unlucky fashion) by a heart issue, while leaving behind a guy who not only has been able to get massively overpaid, but dates an international super model. Who on the Wolves could possibly be luckier than this guy?
