FD-Sanctioned Draft Celebration



The night before the draft, the much-respected No Mas is putting on some shit in NYC that you just wouldn't believe. "The Lottery by No Mas" is like the lottery, but about the history of the institution and the fate of the picks. And you might get some art out of it, like the Jim Jackson portrait up top. There's also a def-to-def No Mas/Puma shoe being unveiled, and booze flowing.

If you go, get planned to "think about how weird it is that the lottery exists and has a huge effect on these player’s lives and to reconsider the famous, the fallen, and the forgotten in relation to this ritual." Or you just stay home, read this site, and get the same thing minus the perks and human interaction.

For all information and better explanation, here's the event site. I also have it on good information that Billups will be in the building as the official FD representative. Hopefully, he'll have made arrangements to get the corner of the Len Bias bent in advance.

At the risk of sounding like a complete Waldo, No Mas and Free Darko are like the bacon and cheese on the hamburger of sports.

human interaction is overrated.

Does this mean what I think it means--and if so, doesn't it seem in kind of poor taste to reference what you're up to by comparison to someone who died that way? Then again, what the hell do I care...?

i have no idea what you're talking about, or what you think i'm talking about.

the sentence was in reference to the "bent-corner" theory of the ewing lottery conspiracy. granted, i didn't exactly make it make sense with nm's plan, but i don't see where the outrage is coming from.

Yeah, crap. My bad. Now you explain it, it's the most beautiful illustration of the basic freedarko principle I've seen so far.

Great news: Rod Benson just got some plaudits from Don Nelson. How great would it be to have that guy in the Warriors' locker room?
