This will be my first time watching the NBA Draft lottery in a couple of years. I used to work as an adult ESL teacher — a job I absolutely loved, but one that forced me to teach the occasional night class. The gig was only part-time, and in the immortal words of Latrell Sprewell, I got a family to feed, so I moved on to a full-time job. I’d be lying if I said the decision wasn’t also partly based on my desire not to miss any more big Knicks-related events.
My first day was Monday, March 9.
