Tonight was the NBA Draft Lottery. I wanted to let all the conspiracy theorists out there know that the lowly Milwaukee Bucks won the lottery. Clearly, David Stern had a vested interest in putting the NBA's next superstar in the media center that is Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

That being said, I think the NBA Draft has replaced the NFL Draft as my favorite to watch.
