See, the lottery’s format back then was different than it is today. There were 11 non-playoff teams in ‘93. And the rules didn’t derive from any complicated algorithms, handing the three organizations with the league’s worst records 14 percent odds each, then slightly worse percentages down the line, as they do today. “(Today’s system) is impossible to explain to anybody but an MIT mathematician,” Williams joked. “I have sat in the back room now for four or five years. And I see it unfold and have no idea what’s going on.”

More than 30 years after his last visit to the White House, Bob Cousy will return on Thursday so President Trump can present him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The 91-year-old Holy Cross and Celtics basketball legend will be the sole recipient during a ceremony scheduled to begin at the Oval Office at 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Trump called Cousy in December to inform him that he planned to present him the honor and Cousy received the official notification from the White House last month. “I’ve thought so much about it,” he said. “For me, it closes my life circle. It’s a completion for me. I will be a happy camper. I’m already the luckiest SOB on the face of the planet and this simply certifies that.”
