That NBA Lottery Pick:
We here at That NBA Lottery Pick would like to wish Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford, “A Happy 27th Birthday” and well, Mr. Horford posted a celebratory photo to his Twitter account only a few short moments ago.

As it turns out, it was his wife Sharon's iPhone. It's tough to be the wife of a coach.

Unfortunately, the Hawks reportedly went ahead and said it -- and now the team could be in trouble with the NBA for violating the league's anti-tampering policy as a result.
Former Atlanta Hawks guard Mookie Blaylock was involved in a headon collision Saturday that left a woman dead, and today he was charged with driving on a suspended license and failing to stay in his lane. One other was injured and Mookie is in the hospital. It’s kind of hard to write anything serious about someone named “Mookie.” Mookie sounds like a muppett. In the future...
