1985 NBA Draft Lottery: I’m Just Saying

1985 NBA Draft Lottery: Im Just Saying

I’d like to take this moment to revisit the infamous 1985 Draft Lottery. In-famous is when you’re MORE than famous. This man El Guapo, he’s not just famous, he’s IN-famous. Wow, in-famous? In-famous? Yes Dusty, infamous.    

Notice the accountant puts the seven envelopes in the ball.  Notice he puts the first three in normally.  Notice that the fourth one he bangs in weirdly. Notice he then tosses the next three in normally again. Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows.  David Stern does.

David Stern reaches in.  He tries not to look, but totally does.  He grabs a pile of three that are stuck together.  He flips them over taking the top one off, you know, the one with the HUGE crease on one corner. Notice that none of the other envelopes have any deformity whatsoever. 

When he takes the rest out – he doesn’t come close to looking in the ball.

And the look on his face when they unveil the Knicks, it looks like he just cheated in cards.  And there you have it.  Absolute proof!

Peace out homies. Six two and even!

Share the love baby!

    Does it really matter, the Knicks never won a championship with Ewing even though he "guaranteed" victory and the Celtics have won 17 championships. If David Stern cheated, thank him for everything he's done for the Celtics.

    Also, I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to link to this in one of my upcoming articles.

    [...] In 1985, the NBA unveiled the NBA Draft Lottery, giving seven non-playoff teams an equal chance at having the #1 overall pick. The initial ping pong ball gave the New York Knickerbockers the opportunity to select Patrick Ewing from Georgetown. Ewing played for the Knicks for 15 seasons and dominated as a seven foot big man. The New York Knicks (24-58) finished in 5th place in the Atlantic Division (39 games back of first) in 1984. The Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors actually tied for last place in the NBA in 1984 with a 22-60 record. Check out this article from joshqpublic, for the Ewing NBA Draft conspiracy theory.

    [...] yes, David Stern can make up words if he likes. He can orchestrate drafts and he can make whole teams disappear; see 2002 and 2006. He can make up words. [...]

    With all the furor over the recent Tiger Woods scandals, it surprised me that the revelation that Tiger had been associated with a doctor believed to be a dispenser of steroids was not followed up. It's very suspicious to me. Tiger is so muscular now, looks as if he may very well be steroid-pumped. Anybody checking that out? Does anybody ever check PGA golfers for steroids? It should be done now in all sports where strength is important, i.e., all sports, period.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
