NBA Draft Lottery: Lon Babby to be Suns lucky charm

The Phoenix Suns announced that President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby will represent the team at the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery.

Is Lon Babby the guy to bring some much-needed luck to a Phoenix Suns organization that's historically had little in that department? We'll find out on Thursday Tuesday, June 21 when Babby is up on that weird stage waiting for the results of the NBA Draft Lottery to be announced.

The Suns have a 11.9-percent chance of winning the first-overall pick in a draft lacking a clear choice at the top of prospect pack.

I'm talking to a few people and working on a story asking the question: Do you even want to win the lottery this year?

Regardless, Lon will be the man on the stage who in every practical sense will have no influence over the result but will be credited for being filled with magical powers should the Suns win and will receive absolutely zero fault should the odds play out as expected.
