WHAT: Deciding the draft order!

THE STORY: The Dallas Mavericks are in the draft lottery for only the second time in a lot of years. That’s a weird thing to think, but it really couldn’t happen at a better time for a franchise that’s trying to rebuild on the fly while Dirk Nowitzki is contemplating just how much longer he wants to grace us with his amazingness.
The Mavericks have the best odds for the ninth pick, so that’s probably where they will end up picking. There could always be a surprise, though, and the Mavs do have 6.1 percent odds of getting a top three pick. That’s not great, but it’s not nothing, either!
Feel free to use this as your open thread to discuss the Lottery, cheer on Michael Finley, and generally freak out if anything crazy happens.
Let’s go Mavs!
