Jay-Z will be representing the New Jersey Nets at the 2008 NBA Draft Lottery, which is set to air live May 20 on ESPN at 8pm. This is ALMOST enough to make me watch the lottery, which has proven year in and year out to be horribly boring television.

“This is very exciting and I hope my nickname “Lucky Lefty” holds up,” Hov said in a statement.
The Nets only have a 1.1 percent chance of landing the top pick in the draft held June 26. This is the first time the team has been in the draft since 2001, the season before Jason Kidd teamed with Richard Jefferson and Kenyon Martin to lead the Nets to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances.
