King of the Ping (Pong)?

A recent on-air pact between KFAN's Paul Allen, and the Timberwolves' president of basketball operations, David Kahn, has the voice of the Vikings packing his bags for next week's NBA Draft Lottery in Secaucus, New Jersey. Allen, a horse racing aficionado, reasoned that if he were to snap his own decade-long Kentucky Derby losing streak, then his "three chins and a unibrow" would be a perfect good luck charm for the notoriously unlucky Wolves franchise. Kahn half-heartedly agreed, and when the unplucked Allen's pick (Super Saver) won the Derby the next day, his ticket was punched. "P.A." hopes to pull off yet another Kentucky miracle, by winning the rights to Kentucky Wildcat phenom, John Wall. Slotted with the second most ping pong balls and a 19.9% chance, it would be the first time in its 21-year history that the Wolves not only won the lottery, but improved their draft position. Will P.A. pull off the Daily Double? Check back Tuesday, May 18. In the meantime, try your own luck at ESPN's Lottery Mock Draft.
