Pelicans Hit the Jackpot


New Orleans Pelicans Win the Number One Overall Draft Pick

The New Orleans Pelicans could lose Anthony Davis, but how’s Zion Williamson for a consolation prize?

Winners of the 2019 draft lottery, the Pelicans will have the first pick in the draft for only the second time in their franchise history; the first being in 2012 ironically, when they selected Anthony Davis.

The Pelicans entered the night tied for the 7thbest odds of landing the No.1 pick (at roughly 6 percent). It was executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin’s lucky night as the ping-pong balls favoured the Pelicans.

At this point, David Griffin is basically the human form of a four leaf clover. This is now the 4thtime that his team has one the draft lottery. Among his good luck charms and superstitions is a lucky tie he wore tonight as well as his grandmothers pin or “the angel on my shoulder” as he calls it.

It was an exciting moment for the Pelicans:
