The last time the Bucks won the NBA Lottery, General Manager Larry Harris carried Michael Millies’ “Little Cleo” fishing lure and Emily Dunne’s purple and white bracelet with him on stage, and the Bucks jumped from sixth to first in the 2005 NBA Draft. As we approach the 2014 Draft Lottery, on Tuesday, May 20th, we want to know what lucky charm are you going to have with you as you watch the broadcast?
Whatever your lucky item may be, we want to know! Send us a photo of your lucky item using the hashtag #BucksLuck over Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and tell us why it’s lucky to you.
We will then select a winner (official rules) to receive two 2014-15 Season Tickets and an autographed 2014 Draft Hat from the Bucks top selection. Good luck to you…and uh…us!
