Invoking our collective 'One Time!'



We all know the draft lottery is based on luck.  And while the lottery itself might seem like just pure luck, there are some 'skills' involved as well.  You have to successfully suck like the majority of the teams in the lottery or successfully hornswaggle another club to leave their pick unprotected.  Either way, there is more than just luck involved.

This reminds me of poker.  Poker?  Yeah.  If you've seen any poker on ESPN the last few years, you've seen people begging for cards to hit or outs to come, and even though the favorite to win seems to be a lock, the underdog comes from nowhere to win.  You may have even heard the phrase 'One Time, dealer!' when a player is down to his/her last chance. 

I think it's time, we as Jazz fans, go after our 'One Time!' and make this draft lottery thing happen.  Looking back in Jazz lore, I don't see any 'magic blessings' coming our way for free.  No miracle card dropped in our lap.  We've been Bavettad, Jordaned, hell, we even got Pau'd with the Lakers/Grizzle trade.  We've never been lucky to snag a Tim Duncan out of nowhere or even slide up a few spots in the draft.  So, it's time.  Let's pull together and crack those aces with our one-outer.  Get all the ugly karma and just misses from years back and get us a top-3 pick.

I'll be here watching... expecting nothing less than for the favorite to win---the Jazz to pick from 9-12.  But... I'm holding out hope that something special is gonna happen.  And there's nowhere I'd rather be to witness it than with SLC Dunk.
