A quick hype piece to get all Atlanta Hawks fans excited about tonight’s pending 2019 NBA Draft Lottery.

At lost last, the day has arrived. For all lottery teams in the NBA, including the Atlanta Hawks, the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery represents the best chance for teams to improve their roster that doesn’t involved trading players from other rosters or poaching good players from other teams via free agency.

Of course, the main reasons why teams and their fanbases are hyped up is due to the fact that this draft lottery features one of the best prospects in recent memory – a player whose star is already extraordinarily, even after only one season at Duke University.

You know his name, but I’ll repeat it anyway: Zion Williamson.

A virtuoso basketball player with one of the most absurd vertical leaps perhaps of all time, all teams in the lottery would like nothing more than to see their team land the #1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery tonight around 8:30 p.m. EST – allowing the chance to draft the singular skills of Zion:

Of course, seeing as this site is focused on Atlanta Hawks-related content, let’s just take a minute and ponder why the Hawks landing the #1 overall pick would utterly transform the Atlanta sports scene.

First, it would make the Hawks one of the biggest draws in a city that is dominated by the NFL’s Falcons, MLB’s Braves and even MLS’s Atlanta United FC. Furthermore, when the season rolls around, the University of Georgia’s football team is far more popular than the Hawks.

If Zion was here, all that would change.

While not winning the lottery isn’t the end of the world, if you’re a Hawks fan, make sure to follow all your superstitions and wear Hawks gear all day today!
